Only be viewed by you Instagram's direct message function. At the top right of the homepage, navigate to these direct messages. By means of direct message you can send other people a personal message or you can create a group of friends where you can all chat and share messages. How does the Instagram feed work? When Instagram first existed, you got your feed, the place where all posts from the people you follow can be seen, in chronological order. Someone who had posted something on Instagram 1 minute ago would then be at the top of your feed.
In 2017 Instagram decided to say goodbye to the chronological feed, according to Instagram you as a user with the chronological feed missed 70% of the posts you context you phone number list are the interested in. Nowadays you no longer get posts in chronological but in personal order, based on algorithms and machine learning, Instagram predicts what you like and uses this for your personal feed. When you use Instagram, messages and stories from your friends almost always appear at the top of your feed. This is because Instagram thinks you place a lot of value on these people.
You like the messages of these people, comment under their messages, view the story of these people, send 'direct messages' to these people and you may have been tagged in a photo by one of these people. You engage with your friends and family, which causes Instagram to put these people in a 'family and friends' category. This category with the people you value the most are important to you, so the messages from these people almost always end up at the top of your feed. Not only the engagement with the person you follow, but also the frequency and duration of your use play a role. Someone who opens the app 20 times every day and spends an average of 2 hours on Instagram will get different messages at the top of their feed than someone who opens the app 2 times every day.
