A copypasta claims Instagram only shows your posts to 7 percent of your followers.
Over the past few months, you might have seen Instagram posts claiming
that the platform has only been showing your photos to seven percent of
your followers. Turns out it's just some weird copypasta, which became
big enough for the company to address. In an official statement posted
on Twitter, Instagram has clarified that it hasn't made any changes to
its algorithm recently and that it never hides users' posts. If you
scroll down far enough, you will come across everyone's photos -- it's
just that you might have a hard time seeing some friends' posts if you
don't interact with them regularly and you're following tons of people.
The platform explained that the level of interaction determines the
order of posts you see in your feed. It's clear from the comments in
that Twitter thread, though, that people don't think that's any better.
Users are asking Instagram to go back to displaying posts in
chronological order like it did before it adopted Facebook's algorithmic
feed. Instagram will likely continue to pattern its feed after its
parent company's, though, so you may want to pay more attention to the
posts of people you actually care about.
