Share

Instagram's users will see recommended post while scrolling through their home feed - an update which was spotted during in testing earlier this month.

The new section is clearly labelled so you will clearly notice when a post is not from an account you now follow.

So basically, you can now see "recommended posts" on your home feed while scrolling.

Earlier this month, Instagram started experimenting with recommended posts. Instagram will make the recommendations based on posts liked by other accounts that you do follow. However, they were not pushed to the users' home feed.

The new feature, called "Recommended for You", has gone live on the Facebook-owned site.

No Instagram I don't want "recommended posts" on my feed. The photo-sharing platform has offered recommended content in the past.

This is a big change for Instagram, probably the biggest since the platform introduced its algorithm-based feed ranking instead of a chronological order. "You can choose to temporarily hide Recommended for You posts", says the Instagram Help Centre. You can also save posts in a folder only you can see by tapping the bookmark icon underneath it. Take a look at everything you've bookmarked by tapping the same icon that sits near the top of your profile.

Instagram Stories has been a massive hit since it came out past year, but you might not know that you can record Stories clips without having to hold one of your digits on the record key.

A couple of weeks back, Instagram had added another feature that lets users follow hashtags. ollowing a hashtag is just like following a person.

'Now it's even easier to stay connected with the interests, hobbies, passions and communities you care about'. The Instagram Help Center has posted instructions - all you have to do is go to the Recommended for You section, tap iPhone or Android and then click hide.

The new tool will be very helpful to new users, especially when it comes to finding new accounts to follow.
