Instagram are reportedly testing the ability to sort your profile grid images into any order you want. Great for pinning content to the top.
According to leaker, mobile developer and reverse engineer Alessandro Paluzzi, Instagram may let users rearrange their profile grid soon. This change could fundamentally change the way profiles are displayed, which have stayed a constant since the birth of Instagram. The profile grid traditionally shows the most recent photos posted by a user in chronological order, with the newest photos at the top.
The screenshots show an Edit Grid button in the Edit Profile page of a business account. Rearranging content is as simple as dragging and dropping the images into your desired order.
This is set to be a great feature for those that want to pin particularly good or important posts to the top of their feed, much like on Facebook, Twitter or SoundCloud. This could also allow those who upload multiple posts that form one large image in the grid, to keep these images linked, even after posting new content.
As Instagram have been putting a greater focus on videos, we’ve seen the social media platform implement many new features. This new feature in testing is yet to be announced by Instagram, so there’s no guarantee they will go ahead with the change.
