Instagram Tests the Recent Posts Feature


Thanks to Instagram’s recent posts feature, no posts will be missed.

Having revised its algorithm in 2016, Instagram has now started to show its content based on who it is and the most interacted type of posts. This decision was heavily criticized and an experimental New Posts button was being attempted in early 2018 to give users more control over the stream.

It is still unclear when the feature will present this reverse chronology so that users will never miss any posts. On the other hand, reverse engineering expert Jane Manchun Wong shared that Instagram may offer this tool in the near future.

With the Instagram Recent Posts feature, users will be able to see the latest posts at the top. For this, a pop-up window appears in the mainstream and when clicked, users are provided with a separate area with the latest photos and videos they follow.
