Instagram’s feed changes

A social media app named Vero went viral for its feature of showing the content in order of it’s upload time unlike the feeds of Instagram. Users even like that app because it doesn’t have any advertisement.

Recently Instagram’s are filled with the advertisement, an advertisement is more than the feed posts and Instagram’s feed changes to advertisement now.

Instagram also said that it’s testing the ‘New Posts’ button so that users can manually update or refresh the feeds whenever they need it. In the next few months still, more improvements will be done to the feeds.
