1.Instagram is switching its feed from chronological to best posts first
The average Instagram user misses 70% of what’s in their feed, with that in mind, Instagram has announced it will start rearranging the order of posts.
This will move away from the current reverse chronological order towards the same format as Facebook, and, more recently Twitter.
Posts will now be ordered based on the likelihood you’ll be interested in the content, your relationship with the person posting and the timeliness of the post.
