Instagram to add 'Recommended' posts to feed

Instagram recommended content rolls out in user home feeds

You will now see a new section called "Recommended for You", so you do not confused with your own home feed. If you see something you don't like, you can temporarily hide "Recommended for You" posts by tapping the camera icon above the post and selecting "Hide". The recommended posts will be suggested to users based on the accounts they follow and the photos or videos that they like on the platform. With the new "Recommended for You" feature, these posts will appear directly in the normal feed. However, this will only be temporary and suggested posts will soon make their way back onto your feed.

It is worth noting that with the introduction of the "recommended posts", Instagram has done away with the chronological feed. Some users, as expected, are not happy about this addition to Instagram and have vented their thoughts on social media. However, they were not pushed to the users' home feed. As spotted by TechCrunch website, the photo-sharing website has started showing recommended posts to users, a feature that was spotted under tests recently. But under the new system the posts will show up in normal feed. It means users scrolling through their home feed will now no longer only see posts from accounts they directly follow alongside the ads.

Instagram's other recent changes include the ability to follow hashtags.

However, the figure excludes areas in western Syria under the control of President Bashar Assad's government and his allies. According to Gerasimov, the main forces of the ISIS fled to Libya and southwestern Asia after being defeated in Syria .

A Instagram spokesperson told TechCrunch that the "Recommended for You" section will not displace posts from people a user follows. For the hashtags, you can easily opt in and out voluntarily.

There's no doubt that there will be a number of users who will not like the "recommended posts" feature. While you could already do that previously, just by going to the Explore tab, the app believes you need a little more help. What's quite surprising is that Instagram has not made an official announcement about this new feature.
