Instagram makes its 'recommended post' feature live for all

Instagram recommended content rolls out in user home feeds

Instagram users would have to select the "Explore" section in order to view all the recommended posts on the platform. "You can choose to temporarily hide Recommended for You posts", says the Instagram Help Centre. As explained by Instagram, these recommendations are based on posts liked by accounts you follow. These posts are recommended for you based on your likes. The photo-editing application will soon be able to showcase recommended posts to account holders.

The change is already causing controversy, with some Instagram users taking to Twitter to vent their anger. The "Recommended for You" section will consist of three or five suggested posts, as shown in the live version. The section will also be clearly labeled so that it's not confused with the normal home feed.

This feature, meant to help broaden a user's reach to more content, comes a couple of weeks after Instagram announced support to follow hashtags, rather than just specific accounts.

Some people aren't really too happy with having recommended posts mixed in with your feed. The photo-sharing platform has offered recommended content in the past. One of the largest one since the company chose to switch the standard chronological feed style to algorithmic one along with the introduction of applications.

Users have choice to follow a hashtag or the new recommended.




Instagram is continuously working on introduction of new features for its users. But the new change will bring this new feature to your feed.

Instagram has been rolling out new features over the past months, with one of them being the ability to follow hashtags in the same way that users would when viewing accounts. You can make unique hashtags while conducting these contests and events and those hashtags will keep all the contributions in one place.

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

Instagram suggesting content isn't exactly something new.
