Welcome to The Connected Church news!
Our next news is about Instagram.
Have you ever wondered how to crack the Instagram algorithm? Or how Instagram works? Then this news that I’m going to share with you is going to be very helpful for you. Because last week, the head of Instagram released details about how Instagram works. He talked about the algorithm, and the details that they look at while determining which posts do well on Instagram, how each post reaches people, etc.
The interesting thing is, he mentioned that Instagram does not have one algorithm, but that it has multiple algorithms, and multiple processes. So, there’s a little bit of definition (of what is algorithm, in his explanation). And then he goes on to talk about some of the factors that influence how posts do. First is the information about the post, the information about the person who posted it, the activity of the person, and also the history of interacting with others. So a very interesting article. And he says this is one of the first to come out of a series of posts that are going to talk about how Instagram works. Definitely that’s going to be something that I look forward to. And as it comes out, we will keep you posted here in this news bulletin.
