The social network already displays posts in the feed in some accounts, in full screen after several months of testing. The function is gradually released until it reaches all users of the platform.

Storytelling

Another change in the platform is the model for displaying Instagram articles, which can already be seen at the top of the screen, certainly when viewing content posted by friends.

Features indicating the number of articles published have been reduced to just three items, regardless of the number of articles published by that account.

For those who do not understand the “Show All” button mentioned above, it is now visible. Anyone who wants to view all the articles hidden in that profile must activate it. As soon as the visualization is released with the consent of the Internet user, other “hidden dots” will appear.

Conversely, those who are not really interested in other articles can cause frustration in the creator, they may lose content. The situation is detrimental to content creators, influencers and other public figures who live without posting on social media.
