Instagram is set to release Instagram Favorites. The new feature would reportedly let you identify which accounts are most relevant to see before other posts.
Instagram confirmed it’s developing a new feature called “Favorites,” which would allow users to select certain accounts and see their posts higher in the feed. A similar feature already exists on Facebook where you can control what appears at the top of your News Feed algorithmically by selecting friends or likes, according to TechCrunch.
This is just one more sign that technology is moving faster than ever before so keep up with all these changes, as Instagram Favorites seem to be around the corner.
Instagram Favorites could give you more control over your feed
Instagram “Favorites” seems like an interesting new feature. This would allow users to view their favourite photos and videos from every account they follow selected from their followers’ list, as well as those accounts not on this list but still important enough for you to want them around during your hiatus period from the platform.
Alessandro Paluzzi, a reverse engineer, posted about Instagram Favorites on his Twitter account. Paluzzi was told by an Instagram spokesperson that ““This feature is an internal prototype that’s still in development, and not testing externally”.
Paid subscription on Instagram is another feature that might be on the way, although there are still few sources that confirm it.
In the past, Instagram has tested a chronological feed for its users, but it changed the algorithm. Today, users have no need to scroll through posts in order to find something interesting or relevant for them – the first thing that pops into your head may just be there waiting when you open up an app on this day.
Though Instagram did say it’s working on the development of Favorites, there’s no guarantee that such a feature will launch to users. Companies like Facebook do test out new ideas and prototypes for public release in order to see which ones work well, but not all tests make their way into general releases!

Dealing with social media influencers is not always easy. Actually, most of the time, companies and influencers can’t communicate clearly, as there is a lack of a cultural, linguistic, and social bridge that connects both.
When it comes to Latin influencers, this communication barrier is even bigger. Not only because a lot of people in countries like Brazil or Colombia don’t English, but also because these countries are highly multicultural, with cities with completely different styles, slang, social and cultural movements within the country.
In the case of Brazil, this aspect is so strong that there are even completely different cultures within the same city, in big metropolises like São Paulo or Rio de Janeiro.
It is really hard to keep up with the constant changes in the pop culture and in the internet world, so contacting an agency whose job is to always be updated about what the influencers are doing, how is the stability in the country, and more important information for your company, is the best strategy.
