Instagram makes its 'recommended post' feature live for all

31 December 2017

Users are discovering posts from accounts they do not follow added to their Instagram feed automatically. The company explains on its help site that it determines which content to suggest based on the stuff that is "liked" by the accounts you choose to follow. Instagram will show three to five suggested posts in the new section.

It is worth noting that with the introduction of the "recommended posts", Instagram has done away with the chronological feed.

The "Recommended for You" option lets the users see recommendations on the basis of the posts liked by the accounts they follow. However, they were not pushed to the users' home feed.

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