Instagram Quietly Launches New Recommended Posts Feature

Instagram Instagram update Instagram new feature Instagram recommended for you Instagram Recommended for you posts Instagram Android Instagram Stories Instagram app

The mobile, desktop, and Internet-based photo-sharing application, which allows users to share pictures and videos either publicly or privately to pre-approved followers, plan to introduce the "Recommended for You" post in the new year.

"These posts are suggested based on posts liked by accounts you follow", Instagram explains on its support pages, adding that you can choose to hide the recommended posts if you feel they somehow upset the serenity of your carefully curated feed.

If you want your followers to participate actively on your Instagram posts, start creating contests where you ask your followers to do a few easy steps to participate in the contest, that will not only make your profile famous, but you can also gain followers on Instagram fast. The new "Recommended for You" feature is currently rolling out now to both the iOS and Android version of the Instagram app. Take note though, this merely tidies up your feed by removing the post - it doesn't stop Instagram dropping in more recommended content into your feed.

Facebook Inc. -owned Instagram is changing up its news feed slightly with a new feature called "Recommended for You".

Many Instagram users have shown their displeasure over this matter via Twitter as they prefer the old chronological home feed. The hope is Recommended posts will boost the visibility of certain posts, as Instagram announced that 70 percent of posts weren't seen in 2016.

Coupled with the new feature, Instagram have also included a new section on its website to teach people how to control which images and videos are displayed on their timeline.

If Instagram had its way, you would be scrolling through its millions of posts for hours on end. If you head to search tab on Instagram, you may notice that it already populated with posts under the search bar titled "Explore".

There's no doubt that there will be a number of users who will not like the "recommended posts" feature.
