You can also sort accounts by when you started following them, so you can quickly see who's been popping up in your feed for the longest or who your most recent follows are. These following categories are accessible through the following button on your profile.
"Instagram is really about bringing you closer to the people and things you care about -- but we know that over time, your interests and relationships can evolve and change," an Instagram spokesperson told TechCrunch. It wants to "make it easier to manage the accounts you follow on Instagram so that they best represent your current connections and interests."
Update your app right now and get to cleaning up that following list!
