Meta is reportedly testing two new features that allow users to control what they see on Instagram.
While the platform is testing the ability to mark multiple posts as “Not Interested” in Explore, it will soon also be testing telling Instagram that you don’t want a title or hashtag.
“We’re testing the ability to flag multiple posts as not interested in exploration. We’ll hide those posts immediately and won’t show you similar content in the future,” the company said.
Whether you’re seeing irrelevant content or leaving content you once liked, you can use this feature to prevent showing content you’re not interested in.
The Instagram interface shows where you can add or remove accounts from your favorites list.
If you add your account to Favorites, you’ll see their posts higher and more frequently.
“And you can see your favorite special feeds to catch up on their posts,” Meta said.
With the follow feature, you can only view posts from accounts you follow in chronological order.
If you click “Not Interested,” the post will be removed from your feed immediately, and “we will recommend reducing such posts in the future,” the company said.
“If you want to take a break from suggested posts, you can easily postpone them for 30 days. To postpone suggested posts, click the X in the upper right corner, then click Postpone all suggested posts for 30 days,” Meta announced.
