Are you curious about the order of Instagram Stories and who appears first on your list of viewers?

Understanding how the platform determines this order can provide valuable insight into who is engaging with your content the most.

🛑 The order of Instagram Stories is determined by interactions and engagement.

🛑 The first person on an Instagram Story is typically the person you interact with the most through likes, page views, and story views.

🛑 The first person on an Instagram Story may also reflect people that you DM with.

🛑 The first person on an Instagram Story may also be someone whose pages you comment on the most.

🛑 If a certain person interacts with your posts a lot, there is a high chance that your Story will appear at the top of their Feed.

🛑 The top Stories are usually the most viewed, so if a certain name keeps appearing at the top of your viewed list, it could be because of high engagement.

🛑 After a certain no. of views, Instagram pushes those who have interacted the most with the account to the top of the list.
