Head of Instagram Shares Algo Insights

Instagram chief Adam Mosseri has shared new insights about the platform’s ranking considerations in a new interview with Colin and Samir.

Let’s break it down:

  • As we know, video rules all. Short-form content now accounts for over half of the time users spend on Instagram. And half of all video impressions are viewed without sound, so compelling visuals and captions are crucial.
  • The platform is embracing the shift toward private engagement, prioritizing the “sends per reach” metric to determine distribution.
  • Instagram is increasingly relying on an AI-driven algorithm, recommending content from accounts from outside of a user’s immediate network to promote discovery.
  • The platform is ranking content that is shared within private circles higher than widely shared posts to keep UX healthy.

So, Red Lobster declared bankruptcy, and the freaked out about the potential of a future without Cheddar Bay biscuits.

Then, Red Lobster sent us all that weird paternal email clarifying that they’re not actually going out of business.

Now, they’re so back with a Crabfest® promo featuring yr boi Flavor Flav. Hopefully someone ran the numbers on the free crab this time.
