Bring back the old school feed

Responding to months of complaints after the last major algorithm redesign, Instagram is making it easier to view new posts.

Remember the good old days when Instagram showed you posts in chronological order and didn't try to guess what you wanted to see? Sadly Instagram's latest algorithm update isn't giving us chronological feeds back, but it's helping to push new content up to the top of feeds, so that's something right?

Instagram announced the update on its blog:

"Today we're introducing changes to give you more control over your feed and ensure the posts you see are timely.

"We've heard it can feel unexpected when your feed refreshes and automatically bumps you to the top. So today we're testing a "New Posts" button that lets you choose when you want to refresh, rather than it happening automatically.

"Based on your feedback, we're also making changes to ensure that newer posts are more likely to appear first in your feed."

So in short, it's not as good as it was originally, but it's better than it was recently. As a result, we feel marginally satisfied.

Instagram better watch out; the world of social media is fickle. Snapchat has been copping it ever since Kylie Jenner basically declared it too boring to open and Rhianna slammed the platform for promoting an incredibly offensive ad that made a joke of domestic violence.

People have been talking for years about deleting Facebook, but in the wake of the Cambridge Analytica data breach scandal, plenty of they're actually doing it.

Ever heard of MySpace? What about Friendster? Bebo? Naw, us neither.
