Instagram to add 'Recommended' posts to feed

Instagram

Instagram has quietly introduced changes to the home feed wherein there will also be the new recommended section that will contain posts liked by those that the user follows.

This new section, entitled "Recommend for You", was spotted while in testing earlier this month, according to Tech Crunch. The report also states that recommended content appears after the user has viewed all the posts in their feed, so as to not overtake content that the user cares about.

'Recommended for You, ' as the new section has been named will run separately from the home feed thereby making it easier for the user to keep track of both.

While you probably have your favorite accounts to follow on Instagram, every once in a while you'd still want to discover some new people or brands to follow.

LB Harrison signs with Patriots
Mike Tomlin isn't sure how long of a break he wants to give his star players before the postseason begins. Pittsburgh, though, realised Harrison could be scooped up by New England, Tennessee or Baltimore.

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.

Previously if you had wanted to see some recommended posts you would have to visit the Explore section which does not interfere with the users normal browsing of their feed. It does seem as though a number of Instagram users wish that they could get rid of the new addition; a large number of tweets were very negative on the whole idea. Unfortunately, this would need to be done for each individual "Recommended for You" post that appears in your feed.

Much to Instagram's dismay, this change has not been a welcome one for users. The idea was created to help users access updated stories and posts from interested events directly on their feed. Is it something you're going to use or are you going to hide the option?

Dear @instagram please put everything back in chronological order and stop doing the recommended posts. Nonetheless, Instagram has already started rolling out the new update and it's just a matter of time before you start seeing it on your feed.
