    We knew this would come, but so quickly? It's becoming another facebook very fast...

    They give the option to at least access that in Facebook, the least they could do is provide a similar option in Instagram.

    Am I the only one who simply wants a feed of posts, from the users I follow, in reverse chronological order (newest first)?

    I like the idea of a “you might like” feature, but not in the main feed. Imagine if you were listening to your Apple Music or Spotify library and a song you’d never saved came on!

    It's hilarious to see all the complaints in here.

    Why are they adding this feature? Because it works and people like it. Complain all you want but the fact is, Instagram has tested this extensively. What they've found is that people engage more with new accounts and follow them. The data shows people actually find great value in this feature.

    Complain all you want, while you might not like it, the vast majority of users do.

    Curious, where is that data? How does it show people a actually finding great value? How does it show that it applies to the vast majority?
