In an effort to quell discontent among users, the Facebook-owned app said on Thursday that it's going to cut down on the possibility that you'll be seeing days-old posts from accounts you follow when you first launch the app. Instead, they're going to "ensure that newer posts are more likely to appear first in the feed."
The news follows a wave of criticism the company received after its 2016 algorithm change, which tweaked the way the feed had functioned for years -- by displaying photo and video posts in reverse chronological order -- to one similar to Facebook's, so that people were seeing things in non-chronological order. In other words, it seems Instagram has had a change of heart, and what was old is new again.
The announcement also mentioned that it's starting to test a "New Posts" button, which will take you straight to the latest posts in your feed.
Here's to the power of collective bitching and moaning!
