Instagram is changing your feed again, this time with 'recommended' posts

New Instagram test adds posts your friends like into your feed

The new feature will have its own label in order to not be confused with the user's home feed and will have anywhere from three to five suggested posts.

Instagram has quietly changed its users" feed by adding new "Recommended posts' feature, which is reportedly the photos or posts liked by your friends.

Instagram, the photo and video sharing network, has introduced a new feature on its platform which has garnered negativity from a lot of people already.

This is being perceived as a big change made by Instagram. However, the addition of recommended content on the home feed is perhaps one of the biggest changes since the platform chose to switch its feed from chronological to algorithmic. It means users scrolling through their home feed will now no longer only see posts from accounts they directly follow alongside the ads.

Hashtags work like a charm on Instagram, they arrange the stuff, and you can search things by hashtags. Also, the users can check the hashtags their friends follow.

Since Instagram does not allow you to paste a link in the post, so you are left with two options.
