To the Instagram addicts, take heart, this isn’t the end of your social world.
Instagram has announced that its non-chronological feeds rollout is almost over and everyone should start seeing the dreaded algorithmic feed on their Instagram app.
Just like Facebook’s news feed, Instagram will show you posts from the people you care about (No words on how they are going to decipher that), but if Facebook’s feed is to be taken into consideration, you should start seeing posts from people you interact and engage with on top of the feed.
I hate to be the bearer of a slightly bad news, but unlike Facebook, Instagram isn’t going to provide users with an option to turn this off, at least for now. To make things worse, Instagram isn’t going back on this because after testing the change, they discovered that “people are liking photos more, commenting more and generally engaging with the community in a more active way.”
Anyone noticed any change?
