Instagram Restores Some Order to Your Chaotic Feed

"Tap the button and you'll be taken to new posts at the top of the feed", Instagram explained.

A test, announced via blog post on Wednesday, introduces a "New Posts" button to users' Instagram feeds.

Unlike on Facebook and Twitter, there's no way to switch from an algorithmic feed to a chronological one on Instagram. all you can do if you're anxious about missing posts from specific people is to turn on post notifications for their individual accounts.

Instagram has also revealed a "New Posts" feature button that'll allow all its users to choose when the page refreshes, rather than the app choosing it for you. A representative of Instagram said to TechCrunch that " we are always testing ways to make it easier to share any moment with friends on Instagram".

For those who have been vehemently upset that Instagram jacked up your timeline with their new algorithm, it seems they have heard your digital screams.

Social media app Vero went viral last month for a key feature that showed content in the order posted - unlike Instagram.

Although the original chronological algorithm won't be back for good, this news does mean you're likely to see newer content (like we did with the old algorithm) over day-old posts.

Instagram announced major changes for your feed this morning, changes that could rock the very foundations our society is built upon.

Instagram is making a well-needed change we think everyone will agree with. Some users would love for the chronological feed to return.

Until now, you were already able to add hashtags and other profiles in your Instagram Bio, however, they were not clickable. And people get a lot more angry when you mess with their behavior patterns than when you highlight some abstract threat like misused personal data.
