In reply to posts claiming that Instagram is showing posts to only 7 percent of an account’s followers, the company has published a series of resolution tweets to reassure users.
In its tweeted responses, Instagram stated that it has not made any modifications to the feed ranking and that it never covers posts from people you are following.
We have not made any recent changes to feed ranking, and we never hide posts from people you're following – if you keep scrolling, you will see them all. Again, your feed is personalized to you and evolves over time based on how you use Instagram.✌️

The tweet also read that the Instagram feed is personalized to a user and grows over time based on the usage.
Instagram also resolved that what comes up in your feed is affected by what posts or accounts you enlist with most, along with new factors such as timeliness of posts, how generally you use Instagram, how many people you follow, and so on.
