New Meta tools to help users control what they see on Instagram

New Delhi, August 30 (IANS): Meta said Tuesday that it is testing two new ways to help users control what they see on Instagram.

While the platform is testing the ability to mark multiple posts in Explore as “Not Interested,” it will also soon start testing the ability to tell Instagram that you don’t want to see suggested posts with certain words, phrases, or emoji in the title or tags. .

“We are testing the ability to mark multiple posts in Explore as Not Interested. We will immediately hide those posts and refrain from showing you similar content in the future,” the company said.

Whether you see something that isn’t relevant or you’ve left something you liked, you can use this feature to stop watching content that doesn’t interest you.

The Instagram user interface that shows where you can add or remove accounts from your favorites list.

When you add an account to your Favorites, you’ll see their posts higher up and more often.

“And you can see a dedicated feed of your Favorites to catch up with just your posts,” Meta said.

With the ‘Following’ feature, you’ll see posts only from the accounts you follow, in chronological order.

Tapping ‘I’m not interested’ removes the post from your feed immediately and “we will suggest fewer posts like this in the future,” the company reported.

“If you want to take a break from suggested posts, you can easily snooze them for 30 days. To snooze suggested posts, tap the X in the top right corner and then tap Snooze all suggested posts for 30 days,” Meta announced.
