It’s been so long that Instagram switched to “curated feed,” that most of us don’t have our hopes up to see posts in chronological order again. However, it’s about to happen after all! Early next year, Instagram says that it will introduce chronological feed again – well, at least for those who still want it.

“We want people to have meaningful control over their experience,” Instagram writes in an announcement. “We’ve been experimenting with Favorites, a way for you to decide whose posts you want to see higher up, and we’re working on another option to see posts from people you follow in chronological order.”

During a Senate hearing yesterday, Instagram head Adam Mosseri said: “We’re currently working on a version of a chronological feed that we hope to launch next year.” The hearing was mainly concerned with Instagram’s plans to improve the safety and wellbeing of its younger users. So, I’m not sure if the chronological feed is a part of the plan, but it will certainly make many users happy.

Instagram ended chronological Feed and switched to algorithm way back in 2016. In 2018, the app tested a feature that would allow you to see new posts first, but it didn’t become a part of the app globally.

The app makes clear that it’s not switching everyone to the chronological feed. There will just be new options that will let you choose what you want to see first: the latest posts, posts from your favorite accounts, or posts that the algorithm chooses for you. We at DIYP were complaining about the algorithmic feed for a while, but we gave it up. I must admit that I even forgot what it was like to see posts in chronological order. However, I’m happy to get reminded and possibly keep my feed in chronological order.

Are you looking forward to having chronological feed again, or you’re used to the “curated” version?

    “We want people to have meaningful control over their experience.”

    It’s a shame they didn’t want that five years ago. They’re about five years too late to reinstate this for me.
