Unfortunately for those that desire to remove this option entirely this is not going to be possible but instead when users come across one of these "recommended" posts they can locate the three dots and choose the "hide" option. However, this will only be temporary and suggested posts will soon make their way back onto your feed. In the past only posts of people you followed, appeared in the feed. This was an expected change after the social media platform conducted pilot testing a few weeks ago. Fortunately, the new "recommended posts" will not clutter the home feed or replace the existing posts but appear after a user has watched all the posts in the feed, added TechCrunch. Its positioning within the home feed itself will only provide it with greater visibility. Sharing a unique coupon code or special promotion offer on Instagram can also be very helpful. But the new change will bring this new feature to your feed.
While you probably have your favorite accounts to follow on Instagram, every once in a while you'd still want to discover some new people or brands to follow.
The injection of recommended content is a fairly big change for Instagram's feed - perhaps one of the largest since the switch from the chronological feed to the algorithmic one, or the introduction of ads.
Instagram is continuously introducing new features to amuse its users.
Users have choice to follow a hashtag or the new recommended. For the hashtags, you can easily opt in and out voluntarily. Users may be less inclined to hit "like" when posts are more prominently visible to their friends.
You know the way Instagram is mostly about likes and less about the comments etc?
