INSTAGRAM is set to make a big twist on how you view the app’s news feed posts.
Techies is currently working on a “version” of the platform that will rank posts chronologically.
During a meeting from US lawmakers, boss Adam Mosseri revealed the feature had been in development for months and that they were aiming to roll it out early next year.
Instagram initially shows snapshots chronologically when it came out in 2010 but many years later decided to use algorithms instead.
Algorithms figure out what they think you’ll like best and bring it to the top of your feed, based on how you interact with other things in the app.
The chronological return would be a big row back to the company’s previous claims that best algorithm for experience.
People have long been calling for the Meta-owned platform to bring the old system back.
Over the summer, Mosseri denied that, saying “most people can’t see things”.
But now it seems tech bosses are finally listening.
Mosseri said he now advocates “giving people the option to have a chronological feed”.
“We’re currently working on a version of the chronological feed that we hope to launch next year.”
