Instagram have finally made a statement about its algorithm changes

Users have long complained about Instagram's departure from a reverse chronological feed.

Instagram has announced that it's updating its algorithm to make sure that newer posts will be more likely to appear first in your feed.

We've heard it can feel unexpected when your feed refreshes and automatically bumps you to the top.

To begin with, Instagram plans to introduce a "New Posts" button to the app, which will basically let you decide when you want to refresh the feed and when you don't. Platforms such as Instagram need to be very cautious when making significant changes to the way they present posts-as Snapchat recently learned. Photos posted several days ago can appear high up in a user's feed. Chronological feed all the way!

Boko Haram Militants Release 100 of 110 Abducted Nigerian Schoolgirls
Only 107 of the Chibok girls have been rescued or returned amid ongoing government negotiation with Boko Haram . The girls' release comes barely a week after Defence minister Dan Alli promised that they would be set free.

In any case, Instagram has not characterized a course of events for the update and testing period of the new algorithm or the determinations of the record that will get the new button. A novel idea. Tapping the button will take users to the top of the feed with new posts.

As Instagram said today, hopefully the new changes "makes browsing Instagram much more enjoyable".

According to Tech Crunch, some users have been given access to a feature that allows them to add someone's post into their Insta story. Currently, everytime you go to the top of your feed, Instagram refreshes it to the newer posts.

Instagram started changing its feed algorithm in 2016. "But this is a nice change that people should notice".

Separately, the platform earlier this week came up with a feature to add hashtag and profile links in user bios.

Instagram is expanding its shopping feature to other countries such as Australia, Brazil, Canada, Italy, France, Germany, Spain, and the United Kingdom.
