The Answer:

In the end there are only TWO main ways Instagram prioritizes the list of your story viewers:

1. Stories list order is in reverse chronological order until the viewers are more than 50

So until you reach more than 50 views the viewers, your story views will be listed by who first viewed your story and then the most recent story view will be listed on the bottom (reverse chronological order). After 50+, then the other order takes place:

2. After 50 story viewers, ‚ÄčInstagram then prioritizes who interacts with YOUR Instagram account most.

Based on several tests, online sources (particularly in the Reddit community), it would seem to suggest that the order of who has viewed your Instagram story boils down to the activity of that user with your account.

This means that whoever visits your profile, likes, comments, views your stories or interacts with your account the most will be at the top of your Instagram story viewer list.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Profile views are given the heaviest weight in this equation.
