Ep0300: Instagram Adds Pope & Introduces Feed Changes

Pope Francis has just joined Instagram (1.4 million followers in just a few days!), and in other big news for the service, Instagram plans to change your feed order from chronological to best posts first, so you won't miss highly liked content even if you don't check the app incessantly. This aligns with how Facebook and Twitter present posts, and means that content without a lot of likes may never see the light of day. The change will be rolled out slowly much like Instagram's usual service change updates, and over time this move is likely to make Instagram more competitive for brands and less useful for users who look at it as a real-time news feed for their own community. - Lara Killian
