Instagram becomes an interest network with hashtag following

New Instagram test adds posts your friends like into your feed

Now, Instagram users will start to see recommended posts alongside posts from friends and family.

Instagram suggests "Recommended for You" posts based on posts liked by accounts that a user follow.

The Facebook-owned company has given a two-liner on how it determines which posts appear in the "Recommended for You" section. People can temporarily hide "Recommended for You" posts by tapping the three-dot menu above the post and then clicking on "Hide".

This is one of the largest changes to the popular social media app since its inception, and will expose users to a wider network of posts.

Instagram will show these recommended posts under a new section called "Recommended for You" in your main feed. Instead, the suggested content will be based on what people you follow have liked. The recommended posts from accounts that users aren't already following will appear in a user's normal Instagram feed. Sharing a unique coupon code or special promotion offer on Instagram can also be very helpful. One of the largest one since the company made a decision to switch the standard chronological feed style to algorithmic one along with the introduction of applications.

When you find a hashtag you like, open the hashtag page and tap on the following button. The new "Recommended for You" feature is currently rolling out now to both the iOS and Android version of the Instagram app.

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

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! However, things have changed and Instagram users will now be viewing the content directly on their homepages.
