Change in comment section

Once again a minor update from Instagram. The comment section now can be sort by top comment and recent comment.

Like the topic discussed recently - people buying likes to comment to be on top and gain followers, this will hugely favor them and a big headache for people like me to be able to make sure I replied all comments :frowning:


This has been around on youtube for a long time now and it doesn’t pose a big issue there as far as I know…

I think it’s a double edged sword, as people that buy likes for their comment can be made out easier by Instagram.

Of course there’ll be top-notch providers that will make sure the comments look legit to the algorithms and measures.

But everyone leaves traces over time and data is stored, like, forever? So no worries :smiley:

I can’t find a place to buy comment likes, correct me if I’m wrong but its not common for people to sell them right?

The feature just got released buddy! :joy:

Noticed that today too.
As said here above, i also think they came up with this feature to make like-comment buyers lives harder.

I agree. For the fake comments, it’ll be easier to make them visible in radar.
Just for normal people, it got difficult to make sure we reply to all comments.

There are few services which claim they sell likes for comments. But never used them and with the current update, I would not dare to.

I find the “Newest Thing” pretty cool :innocent:

This is just a UI upgrade, nothing to worry about :smile:

This is good, now you can target the most recent users means they are more likely to follow back!
