Celebs Share Inaccurate Meme About Instagram Timeline

As you may have heard in the last couple weeks, Instagram will soon be reordering your timeline to present content in order of how it thinks you will find posts interesting, rather than place everything in a chronological order as before.

A meme has started to go viral on the social media app telling users to “turn on notifications” so that they can still see posts that a user puts up.

The meme is inaccurate as all posts will still be there for you to see, they’ll just be in a different order, according to BuzzFeed. If you turn on notifications for every person you follow, you’ll get a push notification to your phone every time someone posts, but it won’t make your timeline change to chronological order. So prepare for your phone to start blowing up with notifications if you follow suit!

Lots of celebs have joined the movement to tell their fans to turn on notifications, including Ellie Goulding, January Jones, Ashley Tisdale, Cameron Dallas, Jaime King, and many more. See their posts below.

Instagram Will Reorder Your Timeline Using an Algorithm

Instagram just announced a big new change that a lot of users might not be happy about. Your timeline is going to be reordered based on an algorithm in the near future.

The company released a blog post announcing the change, which is being made to make sure that users don’t miss content that is important to them. On average, people miss 70 percent of their feeds.

“The order of photos and videos in your feed will be based on the likelihood you’ll be interested in the content, your relationship with the person posting and the timeliness of the post. As we begin, we’re focusing on optimizing the order — all the posts will still be there, just in a different order,” the post read.

“If your favorite musician shares a video from last night’s concert, it will be waiting for you when you wake up, no matter how many accounts you follow or what time zone you live in. And when your best friend posts a photo of her new puppy, you won’t miss it,” Instagram’s reps added. “We’re going to take time to get this right and listen to your feedback along the way. You’ll see this new experience in the coming months.”

We moved quickly to fix the problem, and both services are back to 100% for everyone.”

During the outage, users quickly flocked to Twitter to express their displeasure that the sites were down – and there were some pretty funny user responses!
