How to Earn Money from Instagram in 2018

Besides putting new posts higher up, Instagram said it is testing a “New Posts” button so that users can refresh their feeds when they want to, rather than automatically being transported to the top in the middle of browsing.

Instagram is changing its algorithm to make things a little more timely.

Users are now likely to see newer posts higher up, the image-sharing app said last week, adding that its feeds will “feel more fresh.” Instagram’s algorithm, in other words, won’t be meddling quite as much. More images and videos will be allowed to bubble up as they come.

The company also said it is testing a “New Posts” button so that users can refresh their feeds when they want to, rather than automatically being transported to the top in the middle of browsing.

The changes are in response to user feedback. They appear to address some common gripes, like how certain posts can keep appearing on your screen for days and days and days, or how your feed can begin to feel skewed in favor of the same old friends you habitually double-tap.

After its data leak Facebook is facing another challenge – a campaign calling users to unsubscribe under the hastag “deletefacebook”. For many users, the trust is alread broken and young adults huddling in front of screens in one cafe in Berlin said they’re considering deleting their accounts. “I’m a little bit worried about what Facebook is doing with my information, of course. And the last information we got from the press makes this feeling even stronger,” said one young Italian man.

“At the same time I’m not that surprised this kind of thing happens because giving so much information, so much valuable information to an entity that is made to make profit,” he added. For other young adults a life after Facebook is not only possible, it’s a reality.

“Personally, I hardly use Facebook anymore because I’m active on other social media platforms. Because of all the previous scandals with Facebook I found the whole thing suspicious,” a young German woman called Lea Bloemeke said.

And many people are suspicious of more than just Facebook. “Even sitting here in this cafe, using Hotspot, free Wi-Fi, means that data is being recorded which can then be marketed,” Thomas Helbig, another young German, said. Facebook, with more than two billion monthly active users, made almost all its 40.6 billion dollars in revenue last year from advertising.

“We did this via a number of changes, including an adjustment so that very old content does not get bumped up higher in (the) feed,” said Gabe Madway, Instagram’s spokesman.

He added that the Menlo Park company is not returning to a chronological feed. As Instagram said (apparently addressing users in the Western Hemisphere): “If your best friend shares a selfie from her vacation in Australia, it will be waiting for you when you wake up.”

Still, the move appears to dial back, even if only slightly, the major change that came in March 2016 when Instagram said feeds would be “ordered to show the moments we believe you will care about the most.”

Instagram is one of several social media companies that are striving to find the right balance between arranging content chronologically and ranking it according to machine-learned impressions of relevance.
