Instagram is testing new feed display options, including a variation of the platform’s long-gone and much-missed chronological feed.
Users will be able to mark some of the accounts they follow as Favorites. Content from those accounts will then be prioritized in their feed.
We want to be clear that we’re creating new options — providing people with more choices so they can decide what works best for them — not switching everyone back to a chronological feed. You can expect more on this early next year!

Currently, Instagram’s feed is influenced by an algorithm and includes recommended posts based on user activity.
While a chronological feed can help users see more posts from friends and family, it is also likely to help Instagram make the platform a safer place for teens.
