Photo-sharing platform Instagram has rolled out “Recommended for You” feature for its all users. The feature was being tested by it for quite some time.
The new feature suggests three to five posts for the users when they will browse their Instagram feed. The suggestion would be based on the accounts users follow.
“Recommended for You” section won’t replace or get in the way of the accounts you explicitly follow, and will instead appear after you’ve seen all posts in your feed. Also the ‘Recommended for You’ feature can be temporarily disabled by clicking three dots on top-right of the post,” Instagram official was quoted as saying by TechCrunch.
Earlier recommended posts and videos used to appear in the Explore tab. Now it will start appearing more prominently.
In case a user does not want to see a post then one can temporarily hide “Recommended for You” posts by tapping the camera icon above the post and selecting “Hide.”
Instgram introduced the ability to follow hashtags, which allows new ways to discover photos, videos and people on Instagram. Now it’s even easier to stay connected with the interests, hobbies, passions and communities you care about.
Meanwhile, the Photo-sharing app got blocked in Iran amid several days of protests. The move is aimed to maintain tranquillity and security of society.
