At the end of 2021, more precisely on December 8, the Instagram informed that he would return with his chronological feed, view of posts with which the social network started. This kind of feed, as the name implies, shows posts based on the time they were posted, most recent to oldest. The switch to today’s algorithm-only system happened in 2016

Instagram releases tests with three feeds for users

the ad of Adam Mosseri about the return of the chronological feed happened during a hearing of the american congress. During your testimony, Mosseri informed that the novelty would arrive in the first quarter of 2022. And already in the first week of this year, the tests of the new feeds arrive to the lucky users (which was not my case). The test will give the user the option to see three Different feeds: Home, Favorites and Following. Check out Adam Mosseri, the boss of Instagram, explaining the new feeds from social network. Next, the explanation in Portuguese

THE Home feed is the current model, based on the Instagram algorithm. This algorithm tries to understand your taste, showing the most liked content and the ones that follow your taste. Do you like a lot of airplane photos and follow accounts like that? You will receive more images of the kind. Is a friend getting a lot of likes on some image or is it a friend that you like the photos a lot? It will be prioritized. In many cases the algorithm throws an image down your throat several times until you like it. It’s a bag, Adam Mosseri. Please fix it.

THE following feed is the chronological feed: you will see the images in the application in order of posting. That simple. But the Instagram thought it bad for “hiding” “good” content from the user.

already the Favorites will give you the option to save accounts as favorites (as the name says), either from best friends or favorite content creators. So, this favorite feed will show you the selected images from that group. A good way to keep up with the closest people and accounts you prefer.
