Instagram Notifications Meme Goes Viral Despite Being Inaccurate

Instagram Notifications Meme Goes Viral Despite Being Inaccurate

A meme is going viral on Instagram informing users to turn on notifications for their favorite people to follow in order to ensure they see their posts once the timeline change happens.

As you may have heard, the social media app will be reordering your timeline to present content in order of how it thinks you will find posts interesting, rather than place everything in a chronological order as before.

The meme is inaccurate though as all posts will still be there for you to see, they’ll just be in a different order, according to BuzzFeed. If you turn on notifications for every person you follow, you’ll get a push notification to your phone every time someone posts, but it won’t make your timeline change to chronological order. So prepare for your phone to start blowing up with notifications if you follow suit!

Lots of celebs have joined the movement to tell their fans to turn on notifications, including Ashley Tisdale, Cameron Dallas, Carlos PenaVega, Jake Miller, and many more. See their posts below.
