    4 monthes ago - By Business Insider

    This is a picture of Mark Zuckerberg, billionaire founder and CEO of Facebook.
    He posted the photo in 2016 Tuesday to celebrate Instagram growing to 500 million users .

    Instagram has announced that it's updating its algorithm to make sure that newer posts will be more likely to appear first in your feed.

  • Instagram will show more recent posts due to algorithm backlash

    4 monthes ago - By TechCrunch

    Instagram isn't quite bringing back the chronological feed but it will show more new posts and stop suddenly bumping you to the top of the feed while you're scrolling. “With these changes, your feed will feel more fresh, and you won't miss the moments you care about” Instagram writes.

Instead, you'll be able to manually push a “New Posts” button when you want to...

Instagram officially switched from a chronological feed to an algorithmic one back in 2016, and to say people were angry would be a bit of an understatement. Not only did it mean you were being fed a timeline that Instagram decided on, it meant you might also miss updates from people because Instagram chose to move them down.
