instagram: Instagram may soon allow you to rearrange posts on your profile – Times of India
Instagram is reportedly testing a new feature that will allow users to re-arrange the posts on their profile. According to a post by app researcher Alessandro Paluzzi, the Facebook owned platform is testing a new ‘Edit Grid’ option that can be found under the profile settings. The option will allow users to rejig the way posts are seen on the profile, regardless of time they were posted.
As of now, the company has not revealed any information about the feature and it is still unknown when the users will get it. According to the screenshot shared by Paluzzi, the users will be able to drag and drop the posts on their profile in an order they like. Recently, Instagram head Adam Mosseri said that the company is trying to give more control to the users in 2022. It looks like the feature is one of the ways the platform is providing control to users. Currently users can only delete or archive a post in their profile.
Last week, Instagram also started testing a new feature that allows people to choose what is shown in their feeds. With the feature, users will be able to sort posts by new. They will also be able to choose posts from their non-favourite accounts. The announcement was made by Instagram head Adam Mosseri via a post on Twitter. It is currently under testing and is available to a select few users only.
In the video shared with the tweet, he says that Instagram will have three different feeds in the future. One of them will be called Home which is the Instagram experience we see currently. Under this, the content is shown to a reader depending on his interests. Second feed will be called Favourites which will be a sort of subset of the Home feed. It will list posts from accounts that are marked as favourite. This can include the account of a favourite creator or a friend. The third feed will be called Following which will be a chronological list of posts only from the accounts an Instagram user follows.
