Instagram Update: The Long-Awaited Return of the Chronological Instagram Feed

Chronological IG Feed

On Wednesday, December 8th; Adam Mosseri, head of Instagram, stated that Instagram was working on an update that users have been clamoring for. The current Instagram feed algorithm uses data collected by Instagram to provide a curated feed, and essentially show users what Instagram thinks they want to see. However, users have longed for the days when Instagram showed posts chronologically and posts would appear in a timely manner. As a result, users will be able to see recent posts from their friends within their feed more frequently.
