More than five years after Instagram moved from strict chronological feed to algorithmik, you still hear people underestimate for “a beautiful past.” And while companies don’t seem interested in how things in the past, Instagram has shared new blog posts that try to overcome some “misunderstandings” around how to advance content. Written by Adam Mosseri, Head Instagram, the blog starts with saying no one algorithm decides what you see on each side of the application. Instead, each part of the software has its own code set that regulates how it assesses content.
All algorithms are widely working in the same way, even though they are “tailored to how people use it.” For example, when it comes to your feed queue and your story, Instagram said the goal is to place photos and videos in front of you from friends, family and the closest to you.
Each post is ranked based on information extract information from them. According to Instagram, there are “thousands” signals, “this but in most cases, one more important is the popularity of a post. However, it will also act on your activities and history recently interacting with someone. Instagram will then use this information to predict how chances are you like to spend “a few seconds” at the post to comment, like and save it. “The more likely you take action, and the more we weigh it, the higher you will see a post,” Mosseri said. In short, the company aims to maximize your involvement by posting.
While focus shifts to discovery with the Explore tab, here too, Instagram tries to measure how much you are involved with photos or videos. Where everything is a little different is when it comes to rolls. Here, Instagram said the goal was the surface pin that you thought would find funny or entertaining. For this reason, Instagram says the most important prediction that is tried to do when it comes to rolls is whether you will watch it along the way.
Blog posts also touch Shadowbanning. Unfortunately, Instagram doesn’t have many things to say here besides the fact that he plans to be more transparent about various things. It is said that it develops notifications in the “Better” application that will tell people why companies decrease one of their posts.
If you want more control over your Instagram experience, the company recommends a number of things. First, he said you have to choose your close friend to the story. This will not only allow you to limit who sees your story, but will also prioritize their photos and videos. You also have to set up (or stop following) an account if you don’t want to see their posts. And make sure to tap the “Not interested” option to form what you see anywhere else.
