It's a glorious day for those who want a little more control over algorithms. Instagram is finally giving us more ways to view posts in the app.

Driving the news: Three new types of views are now available so you can choose how you see posts.

  • If you want to live in an algorithmically driven universe, by all means stay on the Home feed.
  • If you want to see posts from accounts you follow in reverse chronological order like the good ole days, choose the Following option.
  • If you only care to see posts from accounts you really care about, choose Favorites.

Hope's pro-tip: Always train your algorithms every few weeks to mix up what you see so you don't live in an echo chamber.
