Yesterday I went straight into a panic mode when I saw everyone posting “Turn on your post notifications for xyz”.It was like a apocalypse. I was ready to call Sam & Dean ! (Supernatural Fans – Hi five !)
So I did what everyone else was doing (so unlike me & utterly ashamed) – I posted an image telling my followers to turn on notification for my profile…..
After that I went on a little hunt so as to find out what really was going down.Here’s what I found.First the Good News.
We’re listening and we assure you nothing is changing with your feed right now. We promise to let you know when changes roll out broadly.

So nothing is changing…..Yet !. But what exactly will change once they make the update ?
Firstly why Instagram is making the change ? According to Instagram people miss out on 70% of their feeds.They are making the change to increase its users experience.
So what exactly will change ?
Instagram is changing the “algorithm” of the posts.What that means is,all the images and videos in your feed will not be in order.Instagram will change your feed so it shows you posts that “they” think you will care about more.Not only that,according to multiple sources (google search duh!) this feed will also take into account how many likes and comments a image/video has & what’s your relationship like with the person posting it.
Basically Instagram is going to be your “Mom” telling you what you should like and what you shoudn’t.
Do I like the update ? I am 50-50 on it,I mean I do love Instagram.Time will only tell if it works for us.But as of now stop panicking !!!
And please dont turn on notifications for a profile unless you really want to !
Psst! I am sharing 4 steps to more online sales
Just tell me where to send them.
