Popular social media platform Instagram is bringing good changes to its platform. In order to serve better-personalised content, the company will begin testing the ability to mark multiple posts in Explore as Not interested. This is said to make it simpler for users to guide the platform to recognise posts that they aren’t interested in seeing. Furthermore, Instagram will also soon begin testing the option to express that you do not want to see suggested pictures that contain particular hashtags or caption terms.
The photo-sharing service via its blog post said, “Today, we’re announcing that we’re testing two new ways to help you shape your Instagram experience. And we’re sharing a list of controls and methods that you can use to see more of what you want on your Instagram Feed.”
Instagram is experimenting with allowing users to mark multiple posts in Explore as Not Interested. Those posts will be immediately removed, and similar content won’t be displayed to you in the future.
Additionally, Instagram will soon begin testing a feature that will allow users to notify the social media site they do not want to see suggested photos with specific words, phrases, or emojis in the caption or hashtags. You can use this tool to stop seeing stuff that doesn’t interest you, whether you’re seeing something that’s irrelevant or have grown disinterested in something you used to appreciate.
How to Access Favourites and Following
You’ll notice a user’s posts appear more frequently and higher when you add them to your Favourites. Additionally, you may view a separate feed for each of your favourites to keep up with just their posts.
You will only view posts in chronological order from the accounts you follow when using Following. This view does not include any suggested posts, but you can see the posts from the last 30 days to catch up on anything you might have missed.
By tapping the Instagram logo in your feed, you may access Favourites and Following.
How to use the Not Interested Control
By tapping Not Interested, the post will be immediately removed from your feed and fewer posts similar to it will be recommended in the future. Tap the X in the top right corner of the post if it doesn’t interest you. As an alternative, you can tap on Not Interested from the three-dot menu.
How to Snooze Suggested Posts
You can easily snooze suggested posts for 30 days if you want to take a break from them. Tap the X in the top right corner, then select Snooze all suggested posts for 30 days, to snooze suggested posts.
Adjust Your Sensitive Content Control
Instagram restricts hate speech, bullying and other content that might present a risk of harm to people on its platform. You might come across something, though it doesn’t violate the guidelines, that some people might find disturbing. So you may choose to stick with the current settings or change the Sensitive Material Control to see more or less of specific sensitive content types. Go to your profile, press the Settings menu, select Account, and then tap Sensitive Content Control to examine your sensitive content controls.
