Instagram plans to bring back chronological feed next year.


Instagram is planning to resume its chronological supply next year, according to news from company sources, where it spoke to U.S. lawmakers at a Senate hearing Wednesday on Instagram and teen safety.

“We are currently working on a version of a chronological source that we hope to launch next year,” said Instagram chief Adam Mosseri. He confirmed that the company has been working on this feature for months. Instagram later announced in a Twitter post that it is not passing them all to a chronological source, something he stopped using about five years ago. Instead, it is “creating new options” and offering people more choices.

This is a big change for both Instagram and Mosseri, where just last summer it was claimed in a blog post that a chronological source made it “impossible for most people to see everything, not all posts that interested them “. Mosseri even said that using the chronological source from Instagram caused many users to lose posts from the accounts they followed. “By 2016, people were missing 70% of all their source posts,” Mosseri said.

Instagram has not yet shared additional details on how its new version of a chronological source will work, or how it can prevent users from missing out on posts they might want to see. But Mosseri said the company “is aiming for the first quarter of next year” for such a launch.

Instagram also launched its “Take a Break” selection feature on Tuesday that will push people to temporarily suspend usage as someone will spend a long period of time navigating the app.
