It’s not quite the return of the chronological feed, but Instagram is internally testing an alternative.
Blogger and developer Jane Manchun Wong discovered a Latest Posts feature in the code for the Facebook-owned photo- and video-sharing network, sharing a screenshot in a tweet.
Alexandru Voica, Facebook’s communications manager for engineering in Europe, the Middle East and Africa, responded in a tweet, “Another great find, thanks for sharing it. For those who are keen to know how this was developed, it’s an early prototype from a recent hackathon (a Facebook tradition). It is not available to anyone publicly, and we have no plans to test or launch it at this time.”
