Instagram Clutters Feeds With New 'Recommended Posts' Feature, Further Prioritizing Content Via Algorithms

Instagram will now feature content on your newsfeed from accounts that you do not choose to follow via the new "Recommended Posts" feature. Further deviating from a chronological feed to an algorithm-based feed, the photo sharing service will suggest content based on trending content that your followers are liking, similar to the recommended page. While this might allow trending content to be distributed to target audiences, users are unhappy with newly cluttered feeds.
