Instagram is testing recommended posts in the Feed of the app as they hope to give more exposure to the content on their platform.
The recommendation on Instagram is based on the people you follow and photos/videos that you’ve liked on the platform in the past.
Instagram recommended posts is being tested for the past few months, and now you’ll see recommended posts at the end of your Feed — once all the new feed from the people you follow is over.
If ‘Recommended For You’ pops up on your display, you’ll have an option to either view your past posts or keep scrolling for recommendations.
This feature might help you getting exposed to similar content that you already like on Instagram.
Instagram recommended posts feature will be rolled out the next few days to a limited group of people and once the product is perfected via feedback, it’ll be released to a wider audience.
