Insta•gram-Instant camera, and telegram. With a love of photography, and entrepreneurial spirit, co-founders Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger launched the worldwide phenomenon, Instagram, in 2010: an app where users can edit, filter, share photographs, and follow friends and family at the touch of a button. "Our goal is to not just be a photo-sharing app, but to be the way you share your life when you're on the go."
Within 12 months, 10 million people were instantly sharing, and seeing the world through the iconic, square-crop photo.
Instagram skyrocketed right to the top. After 24 months in business, 30 million users and a $500 million dollar evaluation, Facebook acquired Instagram in April of 2012 for one billion dollars. Facebook creator, Mark Zuckerberg stated he was "...committed to building and growing Instagram independently..." 90 million users joined to the instant sharing app by January of 2013.
With ease, Instagram had become a household name. Within just three years of acquiring the company, Zuckerberg, with Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger, and their brilliant team have shaped Instagram as we know it today-responsible for launching video sharing features, full-size photograph uploads, Instagram direct, Instagram stories, and so many more features used by the 800+ million users today.
But in March of 2016, the interface of Instagram was forever changed. The Algorithm- "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." (Via Instagram's blog on Tumblr published March 15th 2016)
This algorithm does not benefit the average user, weather they are scrolling or posting. Only top engagement posts(number of likes, comments, views, saves etc) make it to the top of your news feed. It causes cluttered posts that can appear from months back, the most popular posts are always first. Leaving your friend's and family's posts toward bottom of your feed...if you can even find them.
Sign Now to tell Instagram it's time they end the algorithms. That Instagram users want to see posts in our news feed chronologically again and not be sorted by how much engagement they receive, that Instagram should be instant once more.
