According to Official Instagram Blog, it is understanding how to personalize your feed with its AI-fueled recommendations, which increases engagement significantly.
Instagram has announced some new features designed to help users provide more direct input into what they’re shown in the application, in order to further align their IG feed to their preferences.
That could help users get rid of a heap of junk at once, which shows Instagram the content that a user is really not interested in.
Instagram will soon begin testing the capacity for users to tell Instagram that they don’t want to see suggested posts with certain words, phrases, or emojis in the caption or included tags.
Use the ‘Not Interested’ control
When you see a post you don’t find interesting or relevant, tap the three-dot menu and then select ‘Not Interested’, or tap the X at the top right of a suggested post on Home. Tapping ‘Not Interested’ removes the post from your feed immediately, and we’ll suggest fewer posts like it in the future.
Adjust your ‘Sensitive Content Control’
We’ve always had rules about what kind of content can be on Instagram, we call these Community Guidelines, for example, we don’t allow hate speech, bullying, and other content that might present a risk of harm to people.
We recognize that everybody has different preferences, so you can decide to leave things as they are, assuming you’re satisfied with your experience today, or you can adjust the Sensitive Content Control to see more or less of some types of sensitive content.
For people under the age of 18, the “More” option is unavailable. To view your Sensitive Content Control go to your profile, tap the Settings menu, tap Account and tap Sensitive Content control.
Snooze suggested posts
Suggested posts in your feed are posts from accounts you don’t follow but may be interested in. If you want to take a break from suggested posts in your feed, you can easily snooze them for 30 days.
To snooze suggested posts, tap the X on the top right corner, and then tap ‘snooze all suggested posts for 30 days’. You can also tap the three-dot menu and select ‘Not Interested’ on a specific post so that we can improve the quality of your suggested posts.
