Instagram will recover the chronological order in the publications

Instagram is working on a new option that will allow you to change the arrangement of your ‘feed‘, which until now could be viewed according to personalization algorithms based on user experience, so that they will be able to see the publications of the accounts that follow in reverse chronological order.

As indicated by the social network through Twitter, with a future modification it seeks that users can decide which publications they want to see at the top of their ‘feeds’, an option that they would have already begun to work through through ‘Favorites’.

With ‘Favorites‘, users will be able to select the accounts of their friends or favorite creators to highlight their latest news every time they access the social network. To this will be added another option to see the publications of the people who follow in chronological order, precisely the configuration that disappeared when they introduced the ‘feed’ algorithm in 2016.

Through Twitter, Instagram has indicated that it seeks that users can decide what interests them most, without taking into account the algorithms it uses to personalize the experience, and has indicated that seek to provide more options for its users.

“We want to make it clear that we are creating new formats, providing users with more options so that they can decide what is best for them, without forcing everyone to change to a chronological order,” said the social network from the account Instagram Commons.

At the moment, the company has not revealed more details on this modification, apart from the two options in which they work, and has added that at the beginning of next year they will reveal news about this change.

It was last June when the director of the social network, Adam Mosseri, detailed the operation of the algorithms, with which he began to work years after launching this social network in 2010. In its beginnings, Instagram worked with an inverse chronological order, so that users could view the publications in the order in which they they had been published by the profiles they followed.

With the growth of the platform, in 2016 users did not see 70 percent of the publications, and they lost almost half of the content of their closest friends, according to Mosseri. In this way, the social network began to use a series of algorithms to personalize your experience.
