Fact: Most people miss 70 percent of the posts in their Instagram feed, according to the company. So they've set about to fix it.

Instagram announced yesterday that a new algorithm will show you your posts in a different order, taking into account the "likelihood you'll be interested in the content, your relationship with the person posting, and the timeliness of the post," Instagram says. So you're no longer going to be getting pics in the order they were posted—instead, similar to the way your Facebook feed is organized, you'll see the posts Instagram thinks you want to see first.

For now, we say it's a really good time to use that stat above to tell your sister-in-law why you didn't double-tap pic #237 of her paleo diet. You missed it! You're one of the people. Or something.
