Instagram Started Testing The Chronological Feed


Instagram Chronological Feed: Meta-owned photo-sharing platform Instagram has started testing the chronological feed, as it promised last month. According to Adam Mosseri, head of Instagram, the firm wants to make it easier to see how they want it to look. This feature is already in trial for some accounts or will be rolled out in the next few weeks.

He also noted that Instagram would soon allow users to toggle between three different feeds, Home, Favorites, and Following. Mosseri said in a tweet, “We are starting to test the ability to switch between three distinct categories – Home, Favorites, Following (two of which will give you the option to view posts in chronological sequence) on your home screen.

Home will be similar to Instagram’s current feed, which ranks posts based on your interests, while Favorites will be a supported feed for the friends you care about most. Following will be a chronological feed only for the accounts you follow.


Mosseri recently said that the platform would double down on the video and focus on the reels.

Instagram has been making some changes to how it handles videos in recent months. In October, it spun off the IGTV brand to bring long-form videos to the main feed. However, users will have to tap on the reels to watch the full video. To the creators, Mosseri said that Instagram would focus on messaging and transparency in 2022.

Earlier in 2016, Instagram chose to shut down the chronological feed, which used to show posts in chronological sequence. It has switched to an algorithm-based feed that shows you posts of interest to you. However, since its introduction in 2016, users have criticised Instagram’s algorithmically arranged feed. Users have complained about not seeing posts from their accounts or seeing old posts at the top of their feeds.
