Instagram Will Now Add "Recommended" Posts

New Instagram test adds posts your friends like into your feed

Previously, the home feed was dedicated to posts from accounts that users follow as well as ads, whereas recommended posts were located exclusively in the "Explore" tab. However, you can choose to temporarily hide Recommended for You posts.

This isn't the first time Instagram has offered recommended content.

The new section, "Recommended for You", is clearly labeled so as not to be confused with your own home feed.

As announced, Instagram is bringing their new feature to their apps.

Trying these ways can help you master Instagram, and you can learn a lot while implementing these tips. "Hiding" the posts will not permanently remove them from the main feed but it will hide them until the user has gone through all of the posts from accounts they are actually following. With these new changes, Instagram users will not only see stories and posts from accounts they follow but additional, relevant content from their wider network. Its positioning within the home feed itself will only provide it with greater visibility. But there is actually a big difference in that the hashtag feature allows you to opt-in while the "Recommended for You" section can not be disabled. Instagram hopes that letting users follow their interests will help keep user engagement high, thereby increasing advertising opportunities for brands.

To hide the recommended post, tap the three-dot icon (horizontal dots on iOS, vertical dots on Android) above the recommended post tap Hide.




When you find a hashtag you like, open the hashtag page and tap on the following button.

It's not the only new feature Instagram has been subtly rolling out.

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

Since Instagram does not allow you to paste a link in the post, so you are left with two options.

If you are new on Instagram or you want to know what it takes to be a master on it, you came to the right place!
