The head of Instagram clarified how the service is going to return the chronological order of posts in the feed

The head of Instagram, Adam Mosseri, in his personal account answered the questions of the platform users about the format in which the chronological order of the output of posts in the feed is planned to return. He clarified that two versions are currently being tested, and the release is scheduled for early next year.

In one version, users will be able to “Set favorites [подписки]and they will be shown at the top in chronological order. “… Elsewhere, the chronological order in which posts are displayed will apply to all subscriptions, although the head of Instagram did not specify how the featured posts will be displayed. When asked when to expect a new feature, he replied that it won’t take long, and the social network “Is already testing the idea with a select few”… And soon it will be followed by “Completely chronological” option.

Mosseri also noted that Instagram is not going to refuse to display posts based on the recommendation algorithm – the service will offer users a choice of one of two versions, as Twitter did earlier. “We’re not going to give up ranking entirely. We’ll give people a choice between the chronological version and the feed [на основе алгоритма]… Without going into details, we believe that ranking helps us introduce people to the content that is most important to them. “– said the head of Instagram.

We will remind, Adam Mosseri spoke about plans to return the chronological order of publications in Instagram, when he spoke at a hearing in the US Senate. The parliamentarians were interested in the impact of the social network on the health of users, as well as the measures that the service is going to take to protect children from potential threats.
