Instagram’s controversial decision to move from a chronological feed to the current algorithm-feed has been a hot topic since it was enacted in 2016. Recently, some reports have suggested the app may soon switch back to the chronological feed.
User @jackharding posted to his Instagram Story noting that his feed was in chronological order, stating, “Instagram back to chronological order. I wonder if this is good or bad news.” Harding later noted that he was an Instagram employee beta testing the chronological feed, with several other users making similar claims.
Naturally, Instagram has not released a statement confirming or denying the reinstitution of the chronological feeds, and beta tests are not a guarantee of features to come.
This news comes after the company disabled their GIPHY partnership following the discovery of a racist GIF.
