You will now see "Recommended" posts in your main Instagram feed

The new "Recommended for You" section will be found in your feed view and will show three to five photos, TechCrunch says. Instagram will then start showing you top posts from that hashtag in your feed and some of the latest stories in your stories bar. To accompany this update, Instagram has chose to implement their "recommended" posts into users' main feeds in hopes of attracting a more widespread option of what you might like.

We're not seeing these in our Instagram feed yet, but we expect them to appear soon. The hashtag follow feature is optional and is dependent on the user clicking the hashtag, however, the "Recommended for You" is not optional and will appear in your feed whether you like it or not. Take note though, this merely tidies up your feed by removing the post - it doesn't stop Instagram dropping in more recommended content into your feed.

The "Recommended for You" feature is now rolling out to all iOS and Android Instagram users. You choose to follow a hashtag, but you can't get rid of recommended posts.

The implementation of the suggested/recommended posts is a big change for the Instagram's users to easily explore more things in their circle.

It is worth noting that with the introduction of the "recommended posts", Instagram has done away with the chronological feed. However, those posts were served to you in the Search & Explore section.

This new section, entitled "Recommend for You", was spotted while in testing earlier this month, according to Tech Crunch.

Everyone knows you can expand the reach of your posts by using a number of relevant hashtags, but what those are aren't always glaringly obvious.

'Today we're introducing the ability to follow hashtags, giving you new ways to discover photos, videos and people on Instagram, ' Instagram said in a press release earlier this month. Hit the + icon, select Gallery, choose Select Multiple, pick out up to 10 of the pictures and clips you want, tap Next and reorder them by dragging and dropping.
