Any day now, Instagram will rearrange your feed so that it shows you what posts it thinks you'll find the most interesting first.

Instagram hopes the change will prevent you from missing posts you care about. But judging by the latest deluge of Instagram posts, many users (especially popular ones) are worried the new algorithm will bury their posts.

If you want to make sure you don't miss posts from your favorite Instagrammers, you can push notifications whenever a user you like posts a photo.
