INSTAGRAM IS CHANGING THE WAY YOU SEE YOUR NEWSFEED
Instagram announced last week that it’s giving users greater control of their newsfeed. The platform is planning to introduce a ‘new posts’ button. The button will allow users to choose when they want to refresh, rather than it happening automatically. If users tap the button, they’ll be taken to new posts- don’t tap, and they’ll stay where they are.
Stay tuned next week to hear how it will affect brands and users.
