First Facebook News Feed and then Twitter timelines and now Instagram feeds. Times are a changin' in the social media world and we'll have to wait and see if that's a good thing. Especially when it comes to this photo-sharing platform. Instagram feeds are simple in their chronological format and yet it also holds a charm in this simplicity.

Although focusing on relevance and popularity might seem like a logical next step, the immediacy of Instagram feeds will suffer. Of course, many people are using the platform in a much more planned way than originally expected. Co-founder CEO Kevin Systrom says users currently miss about 70% of their feeds and the move is "about making sure that the 30% you see is the best 30% possible." That is an interesting set of statistics.
