Ever since it switched from a chronological to algorithmic feed in 2016, Instagram hasn’t always felt very “instant.” Like when you open the app and see a bunch of posts from days ago atop your feed, with fresh content buried below. Fortunately, Instagram is now going back to its roots a bit.
Don’t get too excited: Instagram isn’t switching back to a chronological feed — but the Facebook-owned company on Thursday announced that, based on user feedback, it will roll out some changes to “ensure that newer posts are more likely to appear first in feed.”
“With these changes, your feed will feel more fresh, and you won’t miss the moments you care about,” Instagram wrote. “So if your best friend shares a selfie from her vacation in Australia, it will be waiting for you when you wake up.”
