Instagram Tries to Quell Fears About Its New Feed as Influencers Freak Out

About two weeks after Instagram announced that it planned to completely change the way its feed works by algorithmically ranking your photos, instead of showing them to you in reverse chronological order, the photo app is trying to calm the growing freak-out among some of its highest-profile users.

If you've signed on to Instagram in the last few days, then you may have noticed popular accounts you follow urging you to turn on "notifications" specifically for their posts.

Because Instagram's new ranking system means that you will see posts that only the app thinks you'll be most interested in at the top of your feed, big brands, celebrities, and other high-profile users are worried that their posts could get lost in the shuffle.

Thanks to rumors this weekend that Instagram would be changing its feed on Tuesday, the response reached such a fever pitch that the app felt compelled to tweet that "nothing is changing with your feed right now."

Instagram still hasn't said exactly when it plans to switch the way its feed displays posts, but a representative tells Business Insider that "we have weeks or even months of testing to go."
