The New Instagram Algorithm
Hey all you lovely followers and readers of my blog! Have I mentioned how much I appreciate you lately? Well I do, I really do.
And because I love all of you so much, I’m going to tell you a little secret about the new Instagram algorithm everyone is freaking out about. Ready?
I don’t want you to turn on those notifications!
*gasp* Whaaaat? Did she just really say that?
YES! Yes, I did. Don’t listen to all those people posting about turning on post notifications. Here’s why.
Imagine that you’re in the middle of doing a task and you hear your phone ding, or beep or vibrate…basically it catches your attention.
One click turns into two clicks, then three – then before you know it you’ve spent an hour on social media. “Wait, who’s IG account is this?” “How did I get to watching THIS video?!”
By the time you look up, you have lost all that time you could have spent on the task you were working on before. But this doesn’t just apply to tasks. It can apply to that time you’re supposed to be spending with your spouse, your friends, your kids, etc. If you turn on those notifications, your phone will be dinging so insistently that you might turn off ALL the notifications for good one day! You could even get so annoyed as to leave Instagram and no one wants that to happen!
Instead of turning on those notifications, I challenge you to do the following:
Engage with your favorite people on Instagram.
It’s that simple! Instead of just scrolling past your favorite page’s post – like it so that Instagram knows you want to see more of it. Better still, put in your two cents! Drop a quick comment on their photo and tell them what you think. Not only will this let your favorite account know more about what you like to see, but it will allow Instagram to figure out what posts to show on your feed. It’s a win-win!
Change can be hard but one thing that won’t be changing is the attention to detail and dedication that LD Photography has for all of our clients – meaning all of you lovely people! LD Photography’s goal is to continue to add value to all of your lives through amazing wedding and lifestyle photography coverage. I hope that you all will continue to follow and this time engage with us but we don’t ever want our news feed to be more important than your real life connections. So don’t worry! We’ll still be around and we will still be posting and producing amazing pictures.
