    Yeah, they are owned by Facebook, and Facebook made a lot of money after changing their timelines. So IG is doing the same thing.

    Yes, they announced this a few month ago, that the feed will be changed to work in the same way as Facebook. They have been rolling it out slowly, so not all accounts have been changed at the same time.

    Facebook and instagram is a different market.

    Facebook can be accessed from computers and gadgets, while instagram only android phones

    Despite such, facebook is unmatched in many ways

    Instagram can be accessed through the web as well... And any smartphone, not only android based.

    Instagram in my country is not popular.
    Unbeaten on facebook

    There are countries that do not use smartpon, they still use the BlackBerry.

    I do not know if instagram can be accessed via computer.
    Instagram-like twitter in any form, and as fanspage

    No wonder I've been trying to access Instagram from my iPhone for a year now and it's not working. Thanks for letting me know, I'll go make the switch ASAP.

    This already happened to me a couple of weeks ago. It means that Instagram is applying the algorithm based feed to more accounts. For my IG accounts, there has been a decrease in the amount of engagement that I get but it also seems less critical what time I post things to IG.

    Keeping in mind that Instagram is owned by Facebook, it's inevitable for this to happen. They are just waiting for it to get as huge as can be, to make it an essential channel for businesses and now they are going to filter the feeds and start charging money. That's how you make billions. And we'll move on to the next thing in the meantime which is more exploit-friendly :)
