Instagram has released new changes to the timeline founded on its user feedback. The changes suggest that while Instagram might be listening to feedback, it either does not know how to implement them or doesn’t care enough to do it properly.
What’s New In The Latest Release?
Manual Refreshing Of Timeline. One of these modifications made is the introduction of ‘New Posts’ button that lets users to manually refresh. This stops the old automatic refreshing of the timeline that drags you out of whichever part of the app you were in and forcing you back to beginning of your timeline. With this latest update, you can now manually refresh on your own command want without the app doing it for you.
Another change is a slightly more chronological timeline. Based on users’ feedback, Instagram also make changes to ensure that newer posts are more likely to appear first in feed. With these changes, your feed will feel fresher, and you won’t miss the moments you care about. So if your best friend shares a selfie from her vacation in Australia, it will be waiting for you when you wake up.
Instagram has promised more changes in the coming months but going by the company’s track record there is zero chance of any of them being in the user’s interest.
