Meta-owned photo-sharing platform Instagram has started testing the chronological feed as it promised last month.

Meta-owned photo-sharing platform Instagram has started testing the chronological feed as it promised last month. According to Instagram Head Adam Mosseri, the firm wants to make it easier for people to view content how they want to see it. The feature is already in testing for some accounts or is going out over the next couple of weeks. He also noted that Instagram will soon allow users to toggle between three different feeds: home, favorites and following.

"We are starting to test the ability to switch between three different views on your home screen (two of which would give you the option to see posts in chronological order): Home, Favorites, Following," Mosseri said in a tweet.

Home will be similar to Instagram's current feed, which ranks posts based on what you are likely to be interested in, while "favorites" will be a dedicated feed for the friends you care most about. "Following" will be a chronological feed just for accounts you follow. He recently said that Mosseri said that the platform will "double down" on video and focus on Reels.

Instagram has been making some changes to how it handles videos in recent months. In October, it killed off the IGTV brand to bring longer-form videos into the main feed. However, users need to tap through to Reels to watch the full video. For creators, Mosseri said Instagram will introduce more monetisation tools to help them make a living. In addition, he said Instagram will focus on messaging and transparency in 2022. (IANS/ MBI)

K'taka Hijab Row Triggers Debate.

By M.K. Ashoka

The issue of wearing a hijab (head covering worn in public by Muslim women) to the colleges along with the uniform has sparked a debate in Karnataka over religious practices impacting the education system in the state. The matter has also snowballed into a controversy on whether the hijab could be considered as part of the uniform. The ruling BJP is deliberating on whether to take a call on allowing hijab as part of the uniform of college students. State Education Minister B.C. Nagesh, while opposing the wearing of hijab to classrooms, has said that a decision would be taken on the issue soon by the government.

The experts as well as students are divided over the issue. Those who are in favour state that the dress code in classrooms should not indicate faith or religion as it creates barriers between students as well as teachers. Those who support the wearing of hijab say that hijab should be treated as a scarf. Hijab is black in colour and it can't be a religious symbol as Islam is identified with the green colour. The hijab should be treated as a symbol of chastity, they maintain.

The denial of permission to six girls in the Government Girls' Pre University College in the communally sensitive district of Udupi in the state has created a controversy. Nagesh dubbed it as a political move and questioned whether centres of learning should become religious centres. Meanwhile, the girl students have decided to continue their protest until they are allowed to attend classes wearing hijab.
