By now, or you will begin to start seeing posts very similar, if not the exact same post as the one above that reads, “So as you’ve heard Instagram is changing from tomorrow, it’s gonna show the best posts on your timeline not in the chronological order so please turn on my notifications if you want to still see my posts. X”
Hmm, well if you tap the three dots in the right hand corner of a person’s post, you will notice a “Turn On Post Notification” feature. Not exactly sure how true or not this really is but apparently Instagram will be using the same method as Facebook when it comes to your timeline/newsfeed.
This could be a good or bad thing depending how you look at it. Instead of your post being “rushed” in a sense, more people will be able to review/ like your post(s) – that’s a good thing. But on the other hand, how & the world is Instagram able to determine which posts are the best on your timeline. I mean we all follow certain individuals for a specific reason I believe – either you’re a fan/supporter of the individual or just enjoy the things that they tend to post; therefore that’s what need to appear on your timeline & not what IG considers to be “best”. What’s the point of following anyone if they’re going to determine what’s best for you at the time being. Someone may post information in regards to employment, events or a opportunity for you to win a prize or something within a certain timeframe but you’ll miss out because IG didn’t think that was best for you at the specific time although the post was for a specific time – that’s a bad thing.
The last Instagram Change was a great idea – adding the view feature to videos but who really wants to be notified whenever a specific individual or individuals post anything? I mean I understand sometimes people aren’t aware of your post due to timing or even the amount of followers that person follows but to be notified every time could be nerve wrecking & could eventually cause a person to start unfollowing people instead.
As I mentioned before, I’m not 100% sure at the moment how true or not this new Instagram Change is but it seems significant and it’s a little too early for a April Fools joke, but shall see. In the meantime, what do you think of this new Instagram change? #TalkIsh
