There are so many聽reasons to love Instagram, from keeping up with the best Instas from聽Cannes or the latest in聽celebrity hair聽trends to celebrating the weekend by posting a #winestagram. Our Insta feed shows us real-time updates (currently organized in chronological order) on a simple聽interface. We鈥檝e been preparing ourselves for some major changes for a while, though, since there have been talks of IG鈥檚 feed becoming more like its parent company Facebook鈥檚 feed (non-chronological) since March. Now, Instagram revealed that the dramatic change is closer than ever.


In a blog post聽yesterday,聽Instagram聽announced that they鈥檒l be changing how聽the聽feed works with your next app update. Your feed will go from chronological (you know, instant) to based on what you like and interact with most聽鈥 much like the 鈥渇eatured stories鈥 that Facebook rolled out a while ago.

Apparently, Instagram has seen way more engagement with this approach, and almost convinced us to embrace the change by explaining, 鈥淲ith this new ordering you won鈥檛 miss your favorite band鈥檚 video after the concert, even if it took place across the world in a different time zone. And no matter how many accounts you follow, you should see your best friend鈥檚 latest posts.鈥

A lotta Insta users aren鈥檛 happy with this change, and we don鈥檛 blame them. At least with Facebook, there鈥檚 an option to click back to 鈥渕ost recent,鈥 and ignore the default algorithm. While we don鈥檛 yet know how this will truly affect our use of the app, we鈥檙e definitely curious to see if it鈥檚 true that users miss almost 70 percent of their feeds in the current setup and if this new roll out will really change how we use the app.

Do you think the new Instagram feed is better or worse than before? Tell us @Britandco!
