Instagram Timeline Update

Instagram Timeline Update

Did you know the Instagram algorithm is different from the Facebook algorithm?

With Facebook, you need consistent postings at least 3 times a week on your page. Instagram  consistency is far less important, it’s more about the aesthetic, and creating beautiful posts, great stories and engaging video.

In order to be successful on these platforms, particularly Instagram, you need to respect the platform and its needs. Get your hashtags right is number of them and a good mixture of popular titles and smaller hashtags.

The new Instagram timeline update now puts the more relevant posts at the top was released, which didn’t go down well with users who took to Twitter to vent their frustrations at the changes. One woman has even started a petition on to revert the decision, and has over 300,000 signatures currently.

The update was announced earlier in March, when CEO Kevin Systrom explained in a recent interview “On average, people miss about 70 percent of the posts in their Instagram feed, What this is about is making sure that the 30 percent you see is the best 30 percent possible.”

The only way around this? Turn on the notifications for accounts you want to keep up with.

This wasn’t the only problem for Instagram. Want to log out? Good luck as it’s disappeared.

Yes, it’s literally disappeared of the app. The only way to sign in and out of accounts is to delete the app and re-install it.

Instagram has responded to the complaints about the logging out errors, but it remains to be seen if they will backtrack on the timeline update.

For now, the Instagram timeline update looks like it will be staying, but should the petition reach a huge figure, it could cause them to rethink the changes.
