More features are getting tested by Facebook’s apps like WhatsApp, and now Instagram is digging its hands in the dirt and is testing a new feature for the photo-sharing platform: Favorite users.
Discovered by Twitter user @alex193a, Instagram is working on pinning your favorite users to the Instagram feed, where you’ll see more of the same user you add them to your favorites. Basically prioritizing the users you add to your list.

Instagram is already using advanced algorithms to make some posts go on top of the user’s feed, by analyzing what the user likes more. This in-development feature could change how the users want their feeds to look and could have the chance to actually arrive in a final version.
The photo-sharing platform now joins other social media networks in testing new features and arriving at consuming users from around the world. Instagram now has three new features on the list: like count removal, favorites list, and like stories.
