If you logged into Instagram at any point today, you’ll have realised one thing. People are somewhat freaking out over the upcoming algorithm change which is set to send it the way of Facebook.
(pssst. It’s not going to be chronological anymore. [insert home alone scared face])
OK, so to be fair to everyone there is some rationale behind the panic. If you don’t turn on your favourite brands, friends, aunts and uncles, there’s a chance you’ll never see their posts again as they become buried deep within Instagram, below all the things the Instagram thinks you what to see. Thinks.
This is pretty scary stuff for people who have amassed followers of thousands and millions, and most importantly, make a substantial living from the platform.
Not the type to hang about, people have been pretty darn clever in their bid to get you to turn them on (guffaw). Here are some of the best “turn me on” images.
FYI #TurnMeOn <—nearly 50,000 tags already, and counting. Would imagine some of the images posted over 24 hours are not so relevant to this story…………
Also, big props to everyone who didn’t go for the white page, text and swirly line to the top right corner. High fives all round.
Pretty drawing, The Jotter
As you've probably heard Instagram is introducing a new algorithm which means images will not be posted in a chronological order. To make sure you are keeping up to date with us please click on the three dots in the top right and choose "turn on post notifications." We love the response from you guys and want to make sure we stay connected ✌🏽️#turnmeon
When you’re faced with a Chihuahua smaller than a remote giving you a big speech, you know you need to pay attention.
So I just got the news that #Instagram big wigs are rolling out an idea that seems really stupid and posts won't come up in real time anymore… So if you want to see me taking life seriously as usual TURN NOTIFICATIONS ON for this page! You don't have to, but I've gone round and turned notifications on for my favourite pages and will continue to look at pages of my own accord anyway! • Keep interacting with me! And if you want to turn on notifications, you can do so by pressing the ••• in the top right corner of my page and 'Turn on notifications'. Apparently this is the way it's done, and you don't need a remote for it. I'm not buying it. I'm going to keep trying with this remote. #turnmeon #chihuahua #instadog #dog #puppy #chihuahuasofinstagram #chihuahuas #f #cute #notifications #turnonpostnotifications #dogs #sendadogphoto #ukdogsofinsta #dogsofinstagram #dogsofinstaworld #pawsomechihuahuas #puppies
Good job, Time Out Dubai
Instagram is changing around a little and we don't want you to miss out on any of our delicious photos from tomorrow onwards. To fix this, be sure to click on the three little dots where the arrow is pointing and click on "Turn on post notifications". It won't spam you, we promise.

I have no words. But I like it!
Ooop. Specific, I like it.
A four eyed cat that is impossible to ignore.
He’s wearing a bow tie, for crying out loud. How could anyone ignore him!
Don’t miss out, we hear you, Michelle.
You mean it’s possible to use different words?!
Be just plane rude to say no
I like it!
And the imminent change to Instagram feed seems to be coming soon (despite the petition to call it off). Some say tomorrow while there's no official news from Instagram yet. If you really wish to know when I have posted any new illustration or project, feel free to turn on the Post Notifications by clicking on the 3 dots! 🚥 (but prepared to be buzzed quite a bit if you are turning on notifications for everyone….) And I sneaked in #ifdrawaweek #ifdrawaweek8 prompt (crystals) for this announcement illustration… 😅 #announcement #rhinesticknickknacks #christinerbay_art #digitalart #popart #art #イラスト #イラストレーション #illustration #graphicsdesign #fashionillustration
And finally, help these guys swim to the top of the feed
