Podcast #54: What Does the Instagram Algorithm Really Mean?

You might have heard about the new Instagram algorithm… in fact, if you’re an Instagram user, it’s likely you’ll have heard of nothing else on there for the last week or so!

On March 15th, Instagram announced that they would be introducing an algorithm to timelines. This was hardly a surprise, since Instagram is owned by Facebook – still, when the announcement came everyone panicked. In the last few days we’ve all been inundated by Instagram posts asking us to “turn on notifications” in order to keep seeing updates… I don’t know about you, but they’ve been driving me mad!

In this week’s podcast I talk about why the Instagram algorithm is a good thing, and what you as a content creator can do about it…

I love Instagram; I’ve been using it since 2012 and enjoy seeing photos from my friends on there. But I follow over 4000 people, and there’s no way I can keep up with all of them. In fact, I generally only see posts from people who post around the same time as me each day as that’s when I scroll down my newsfeed. I think the Instagram algorithm is a good thing as it will allow me to keep up with the people whose posts I am interested in seeing.

As a content creator, I am not worried; it just means I need to up my game, and make sure that when the Instagram algorithm is eventually introduced (it’s not even here yet!) I’m posting engaging content that people will want to like and comment on.
