Instagram to optimize your feeds in order of their importance to you
In the near future, a change is going to be made to your Instagram app. You will find that without doing a thing, your feeds will be optimized. This means that the photos and videos that comprise your feeds will be put in order based on what Instagram thinks you would find more interesting.

Why do this? According to the Facebook-owned picture and video sharing site, users miss a whopping 70% of their feeds. As more and more friends, family and contacts join the site, that represents more and more things that you might never see. By putting those feeds that might be more important to you first, it improves the odds that you will see them.

The order will be based on your relationship with the person sending a post, and how timely it is. Also, the content of a picture or video carries a lot of weight in determining its placement in your feed.

Instagram admits that it might not get this right at first, and reiterates that you won't lose any pictures or videos from those you follow. "All the posts will still be there," says Instagram, "just in a different order."
