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!
If you count on looking at your Instagram timeline based on the order that things are posted, you’re out of luck as the company just announced a big change to your timeline.
In the near future, an algorithm will be used to reorder the timeline based on content that you are most interested in as on average, people miss 70 percent of their feeds. The new change is to ensure you see the content you are definitely going to want to see.
“The order of photos and videos in your feed will be based on the likelihood you’ll be interested in the content, your relationship with the person posting and the timeliness of the post. As we begin, we’re focusing on optimizing the order — all the posts will still be there, just in a different order,” the company announced in a blog post.
“If your favorite musician shares a video from last night’s concert, it will be waiting for you when you wake up, no matter how many accounts you follow or what time zone you live in. And when your best friend posts a photo of her new puppy, you won’t miss it,” Instagram’s reps added. “We’re going to take time to get this right and listen to your feedback along the way. You’ll see this new experience in the coming months.”
WHAT DO YOU THINK of this change to the Instagram timeline?
All the Disney Princesses were NOT English…so why aren’t they singing in their native tongues?
Thanks to Movie Munchies on YouTube, we get to hear them all — Frozen‘s Elsa and Anna are Norwegian, The Little Mermaid‘s Ariel would be Danish, Aladdin‘s Jasmine is Arabic, Mulan is clearly Chinese, Tangled‘s Rapunzel is German (Bavaria, originally).
The account also translated Beauty and the Beast‘s Belle to French, Snow White to German, Hercules‘ Megara to Greek, and Sleeping Beauty‘s Aurora to French — we’re ignoring the fact that Aurora IS an English princess, because the French is sooooo beautiful.

Disney Princesses Singing In Their Original Language #1
Sophina DeJesus has taken the Internet by storm after she performed a crowd-pleasing hip-hip floor routine at her college meet on Saturday (February 6).
The 21-year-old gymnast performed dance crazes from songs like “Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae)” and “Hit the Quan.”
“I wanted to go out there, have fun, perform, you know,” Sophina told the Pac-12 Network. “I love dancing and I love performing, so that was the main goal, to go out there and hit a good one for my team.”
Celebrities are continuing to tweet their reactions to the Paris tragedy, which so far, has left over 100 dead.
The attacks started earlier tonight (November 13) with a a shooting at a restaurant, an explosion at the Stade de France, and around 100 hostages being held at a theater. President Hollande declared a state of emergency and closed the countries borders.
Heffron Drive, who was supposed to debut a new video tonight for their new single, have postponed it and many other celebs have reacted to the news.
“I have been in the studio all day w/Dustin making the video, hadnt turned on the news til this moment. #Paris my heart is bleeding for you,” Kendall Schmidtwrote. “Out of respect for the tragedy in #Paris we will NOT post the video tonight. It wouldn’t be right, I hope you understand!”
People are sort of freaking out over an announcement that was just made on Twitter…the social media site will be instituting “likes” instead of “favorites” with a heart icon to replace the star.
The news was announced via the Twitter blog, and fans immediately began commenting. “We are changing our star icon for favorites to a heart and we’ll be calling them likes. We want to make Twitter easier and more rewarding to use, and we know that at times the star could be confusing, especially to newcomers. You might like a lot of things, but not everything can be your favorite,” the Twitter blog announced.
“The heart, in contrast, is a universal symbol that resonates across languages, cultures, and time zones. The heart is more expressive, enabling you to convey a range of emotions and easily connect with people. And in our tests, we found that people loved it,” the blog post continued. They also announced the news in a video, which you can watch below.
Fans did not seem too receptive to the idea, adding comments such as, “Can we talk about this for a second?,” “nooooooooooooooo this is awful,” “this absolutely reeks of panic FYI,” and “but not everything we “favorite” we “like”. Sometimes it’s just like bookmark-ing a tweet. Oh well, I’ll miss the star.”
“I think people have asked about the dislike button for many years. Today is a special day because today is the day I can say we’re working on it and shipping it,” the 31-year-old said in a question and answer session.
Last year, when asked about a dislike button, he answered, “Some people have asked for a dislike button because they want to say, ‘That thing isn’t good.’ And that’s not something that we think is good for the world. So we’re not going to build that.” We guess he changed his mind!
