Instagram is boosting content discovery with a new section that will bring up posts that are "recommended for you" in your feed. After all, even with the "recommended posts" feature, the posts you care about from the accounts you follow will always be available on your feed.
Users are discovering posts from accounts they do not follow added to their Instagram feed automatically.
There's no doubt that there will be a number of users who will not like the "recommended posts" feature.
Just recently, Instagram also introduced a feature where a user can now follow hashtags alongside the more traditional user account, which helps to personalize a feed to an individual's specific interests. In the past only posts of people you followed, appeared in the feed.
Earlier, users had to head to the "explore" section to see recommended posts and videos.
Instagramers' homepage feed is susceptible to "recommended" content.
The change comes shortly after another update also focused on broadening users' access to content beyond what's being posted to those accounts you explicitly follow.
Some people aren't really too happy with having recommended posts mixed in with your feed. Besides, the recommended posts will only appear once you have viewed all the stories on your timeline. Some expressed their disdain for the recommended feature, citing that they were following the accounts they follow for a specific reason. To get more followers, you need to keep your profile attractive. You can also unfollow a hashtag at any time. Hit the + icon, select Gallery, choose Select Multiple, pick out up to 10 of the pictures and clips you want, tap Next and reorder them by dragging and dropping.
When you find a hashtag you like, open the hashtag page and tap on the following button.
Much to Instagram's dismay, this change has not been a welcome one for users.
