Instagram will allow you to add users to Favorites to organize your news feed

Many users of the social network Instagram have to scroll through the news feed for a long time before they manage to find something interesting. This may soon change as the developers began testing a tool to help make the feed more streamlined. We are talking about the ability to add certain users to the “Favorites”, so that their posts will be displayed at the top of the feed.

According to mobile developer Alessandro Paluzzi, who was one of the first to notice the new feature, Favorites helps rank Instagram accounts in order of importance to the user. For example, by adding friends’ accounts to Favorites, you can see their posts first.

Note that in 2017, the developers have already tested the “Favorites” function on Instagram, which allowed restricting access to certain publications. For example, a user could publish a photo and make it available only to a limited number of people, and not to all subscribers. The new Favorites option looks like a more useful tool because it helps you organize your news feed.
