Instagram expanding feature that allows users to tap photos to buy products to Canada

Instagram testing a new 'quote tweet'-style feature

Once a users taps on the button, she/he will be taken to the top of the Instagram feed showing new posts else the user will remain at the same story where they had earlier stopped reading.

According to the report, users of Instagram can select a post on their feed and tap on a button in order to embed it as a part of their Stories.

In addition to that new button, our overlords at Instagram have promised to show more "newer posts" first in the feed. But if your company isn't already investing much time and money into the platform, perhaps it should: A Pew Research Center study published this month found that 35% of USA adults use Instagram, a 7% increase over 2016. But to appease us, the Facebook-owned app is trying to make its messy algorithm better. As Instagram mentions in the blog, the changes will come in a few forms. Like when you open the app and see a bunch of posts from days ago atop your feed, with fresh content buried below.

Toward the end of past year, Instagram has hit more than 800 million month to month active clients.

Instagram switched to algorithm sorting in 2016 and people have not been happy about it.

In a post to their press blog, Instagram said they have heard the frustration.

Instagram announced major changes for your feed this morning, changes that could rock the very foundations our society is built upon. The company is reportedly testing a new feature through which users can reshare public images. This way, you'll get the chance not to miss anything that your friends have posted, and will be up-to-date to all the news.

More than 500,000 advertisers now share posts in the app as "sponsors", which has raked in almost $1 billion in fees for Instagram in the past for years after Facebook took it over.
