Instagram's New Algorithm Will Ensure Newer Posts Show First

Instagram's New Algorithm Will Ensure Newer Posts Show First”

But the real excitement comes from the acknowledgement that Instagram has heard our cries, and is looking to make some switch-ups when it comes to the order in which it shows us things.

A direct response to user feedback, the changes address common problems such as posts appearing on your feed for days on end or seeing posts from the same accounts on a more regular basis than others.

One of the biggest pet peeves users have with the app is not being able to see new posts as they're shared.

Additionally, Instagram is now trialling a "New Posts" button will also ensure that a user will be given the chance to refresh their feed at their own accord.

More changes are in the works for the photo-sharing platform, but marketers and those who rely on Instagram for their business will at least be happy with these initial tweaks to the timeline. There is some issue with some of the posts and videos keep on appearing in users Instagram feed for days and days. Instagram's algorithm, in other words, won't be meddling quite as much. Instagram is testing " New Posts" button which let you choose what you want to refresh.

"We did this via a number of changes, including an adjustment so that very old content does not get bumped up higher in (the) feed", said Gabe Madway, Instagram's spokesman. As Instagram said (apparently addressing users in the Western Hemisphere): "If your best friend shares a selfie from her vacation in Australia, it will be waiting for you when you wake up".

"With these changes, your feed will feel more fresh, and you won't miss the moments you care about", writes the company in a blog post.

In addition to the algorithm tweaks, Instagram has also added a button that'll allow users to manually refresh their newsfeed as a way to prevent accidentally refreshing it.

Instagram is finding difficulty to balance the content chronologically and to rank it according to machine-learned impressions of relevance. But the new algorithm was eventually the target of many complaints, with a handful of users telling Instagram and Facebook to revert to a chronological newsfeed setup.

"Instagram's feed ranking is powered by machine learning, which is constantly adapting and improving based on new data", Madway said.

Previous year the company said it had 800 million users interacting with the app on at least a monthly basis.
