The photo-sharing app Instagram has rolled out a new tool for its app in which it will let its users know who among their following list they least interact with and whose feed is shown the most on their news feeds. This will allow them to manage the accounts they follow on Instagram. Earlier this week Instagram announced a new feature where users are now able to send GIFs from Giphy as stickers in their Stories. Now the users can use this feature to reply to their friends’ stories using GIFs from Giphy.
“Instagram is about bringing you closer to the people and things you care about. We know that over time, relationships and interests can evolve, grow and change. Today, we’re launching a new way for you to easily see the accounts you follow – organized by category. You also have the ability to edit your following list from there.” said the company.
Facebook-owned Instagram continues to roll out new features for its users to make the app more interesting. In order to make the app clutter-free for the users the company has released a new tool called “Least Interacted With” and “Most Seen in Feed.” This feature will let you clean your feed and be more personalised. Moreover, you can do away with those accounts that might be spamming your feed with their irritating multiple posts.
How the new tools work:
Firstly visit your Instagram Profile and then click on “Following”
- There you will find different categories such as “Least Interacted With”, and “Most Seen in Feed”
- Also below you can sort the account you are following in different ways. There you will see “sorted by Default” option, besides this, you will find two arrows by tapping on that it shows three categories “Sort by Default”, “Date followed: Latest” and “Date followed: Earliest.”
This feature has been rolled out globally and is now available for all the users in India, too. If you do not find it you can try updating the Instagram app on your smartphone.
