Instagram will bring back a chronological feed in 2022 | Digital Trends Spanish

Instagram is going to make a major change. After five years, the social network will bring back its feed chronological and will say goodbye to the algorithm that orders the publications that appear in it at will.

In some statements in the Senate On how Instagram addresses teen safety, Instagram director Adam Mosseri said they are already working to get users back to enjoying a timeline on the platform.

“We are currently working on a version of a chronological source that we hope to release next year,” Mosseri said. He explained that the company has been working on bringing this feature back for months, but did not share additional details on how it will work. He also did not specify the exact date of the implementation, but assured that it will happen around the first quarter of 2022.

Shortly after the statements of its executive president, Instagram confirmed through Twitter that, in addition to working on bringing back the feed chronological, this will be optional. The app will also add a feed of favorites in which it will only show the publications of those friends that users select.

We want people to have meaningful control over their experience. We’ve been experimenting with Favorites, a way for you to decide whose posts you want to see higher up, and we’re working on another option to see posts from people you follow in chronological order.

Despite complaints from users, who claimed that the Instagram algorithm manipulated what they saw on their feed and made you lose interest in the smaller accounts, the social network always defended it. Mosseri himself published in June this year a post on the company’s official blog, in which it reaffirmed the idea that a feed in chronological order it made it impossible for people to see everything and miss everything that mattered to them.
