Instagram will now include 'recommended posts' in your feeds

New Instagram test adds posts your friends like into your feed

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. With the new feature, you can select to follow a particular hashtag, and posts with these hashtags will begin appearing on your timeline.

The "Recommended for You" option lets the users see recommendations on the basis of the posts liked by the accounts they follow. People feel "Recommended for You" posts should be put in "Explore" section, making it easier for users to view them, only when they wish to. In the past only posts of people you followed, appeared in the feed.

The change is already causing controversy, with some Instagram users taking to Twitter to vent their anger. It will display posts of users that you follow, who have liked a certain post. The photo-sharing platform has offered recommended content in the past. However, the addition of recommended content on the home feed is perhaps one of the biggest changes since the platform made a decision to switch its feed from chronological to algorithmic. Earlier this month, the platform launched an update that allows users to follow hashtags. Besides Instagram determining which of your friend's posts are worthy of being seen, it now injects stranger's posts into your feed. However, according to a report by TechCrunch, users will see these recommended posts while browsing through their news feed rather than seeing just the posts from the users they follow. You can make unique hashtags while conducting these contests and events and those hashtags will keep all the contributions in one place.
