Instagram finally listens to years of complaints: your feed will be more chronological

By Anthony P

After enduring years of criticism for its unorthodox feed, Instagram released a blog post detailing changes to your feed in the near future.

One of the most common complaints about Instagram in its current state is how you see posts that are older appear higher in your feed than newer ones.

We asked an Instagram user about this, and they said, “[Instagram] should only put posts in your feed that are in the last 24 hours. If it’s longer than 5 days ago, it’s too old.”

This statement reflects the thoughts of many others; people have asked for Instagram to put posts in your feed in chronological order or at least closer to it for years.

The Facebook-owned company said in the blog that it is “making changes to ensure that newer posts are more likely to appear first in feed.”

This appeases many people’s complaints about the social media platform, but until the release of these features, nothing can be for sure about how well the company has done to satisfy users.

Another common complaint that was addressed in the post was how your feed automatically refreshes, bringing you back to the top of your feed. Instagram said that their solution is having “a “New Posts” button thats lets you choose when you want to refresh.”
