It is reported that Instagram users miss on average 70% of their timeline. So the next time your ex thinks your being petty for not liking their posts (even though you really are), show them these numbers and blame it on the stats while you still can.
Instagram is currently in the process of making changes to how users see the photos of the people they follow. In the coming months, your feed will change from chronological order to photos based on your relationship with the person who posted it. In short, the people who’s pages you frequent, will get priority on your time line.
Below is an official statement via Instagram:
The order of photos and videos in your feed will be based on the likelihood you’ll be interested in the content, your relationship with the person posting and the timeliness of the post. As we begin, we’re focusing on optimizing the order — all the posts will still be there, just in a different order.
If your favorite musician shares a video from last night’s concert, it will be waiting for you when you wake up, no matter how many accounts you follow or what time zone you live in. And when your best friend posts a photo of her new puppy, you won’t miss it.
We’re going to take time to get this right and listen to your feedback along the way. You’ll see this new experience in the coming months.
How do you feel about the change Instagram is gearing up to make? Let us know below.
