Instagram feed is changing to a Facebook style, users are now petitioning over it.
Over the last couple of months, Instagram has been doing petitions into the design of their Instagram feed, at the moment it is chronoligcal so everything is in a timeline, from whatever time it has been posted. It has been this way since the beginning, and its worked well.
However, people have complained over the years that they have missed certain peoples pictures, and through this books have been written into what is the best time to be positing your photos to optimise them. But, that’s all changing. Instagram did a petition recently where over 100,000 people signed it in minutes to optimise it so that the people you ‘like’ the most would come up to the top of your feed, that way you would never miss out on your favourite users photos.
In my opinion this is a clever concept, naturally there are some users I prefer seeing than others, and unless you are tagged in it, there is a high possibility you are going to miss it, unless you follow a considerably small amount of people. So this way the most popular accounts in your eyes will appear at the top and then it will go down in popularity for yourself.
But what do you think? Do you like the way its designed at the moment, or do you like the idea of seeing your favourite users at the top and the others below, comment below or tweet me @mrjamesvincent.
