Instagram is switching its feed from chronological to best posts first

Yesterday, Instagram announced it will follow in the footsteps of Facebook and Twitter, switching its users’ photo feed from chronological to an algorithm that surfaces top posts. The new feed of content a user sees when they open the app will be based on the likelihood the user will be interested in the content, his/her relationship with the person posting, and timeliness of the content.

Instagram joins team algorithm.
