  • New Instagram test adds posts your friends like into your feed

The new section is clearly labelled so you will clearly notice when a post is not from an account you now follow.

Now alive and breathing, this feature suggests 3-5 posts by mirroring photos/videos that have already been liked by accounts partakers voluntarily chose to follow. They say that you will only see three to five suggested posts when you go through your feed, but that number will probably increase later on.

No Instagram I don't want "recommended posts" on my feed.

We're not seeing these in our Instagram feed yet, but we expect them to appear soon.

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.

The new section, "Recommended for You", is clearly labeled so as not to be confused with your own home feed. "I follow the accounts I follow for a reason", Tweeted by a user called Bella.

Previously users had to leave the home feed and access the "Explore" tab if they wanted to see recommended posts. The photo-sharing platform has offered recommended content in the past.

The latest feature is considered a key change since the platform abandoned sequential feed in favour of Facebook-like process-based one or introduced advertisements. But under the new system the posts will show up in normal feed.

Instagram's users will see recommended post while scrolling through their home feed - an update which was spotted during in testing earlier this month. For the hashtags, you can easily opt in and out voluntarily.

Dear @instagram please put everything back in chronological order and stop doing the recommended posts. Furthermore, it seems that the reception to the new feature has been lukewarm, with some reacting with indifference and others expressed their confusion.

You know the way Instagram is mostly about likes and less about the comments etc?
