Instagram has a new feature that adds 'recommended' posts to 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. The recommended shots, which are clearly labeled as such, will of course be selected by Instagram's carefully designed algorithms in the hope that each image will pique your interest and prompt you to follow whoever took it. You will now see some Recommended For You suggested posts in your home feed, based on what the accounts you follow like. Another highlight of the post is that if you don't like this new feature, you can always choose to hide it. Posts related to followed hashtags will appear in users' feed algorithmically, based on factors including recency and quality. This was an expected change after the social media platform conducted pilot testing a few weeks ago. The report says that these recommendations will show three to five Instagram posts. It has been made explicit that this section will be different from that of the typical main feed, by doing this, it gives users the visual option of disregarding these posts.

The change comes shortly after another update also focused on broadening users' access to content beyond what's being posted to those accounts you explicitly follow. The photo-sharing platform has offered recommended content in the past.

Much to Instagram's dismay, this change has not been a welcome one for users. For the hashtags, you can easily opt in and out voluntarily.
