Instagram users here is a " NEW YEAR" gift for you !!


NEW DELHI Instagram has made a new feature live on its platform without announcing it publicly. As spotted by TechCrunch website, the photo-sharing website has started showing recommended posts to users, a feature that was spotted under tests recently.

As the name suggests, the new feature will show users Instagram posts that they may like, based on the history. These posts are shown as 'Recommended for You' in between the feed. The report says that these recommendations will show three to five Instagram posts.The Facebook-owned company has given a two-liner on how it determines which posts appear in the 'Recommended for You' section. It has also mentioned that the feature can be temporarily hidden.

"When scrolling through Feed, you may see posts that are Recommended for You. These posts are suggested based on posts liked by accounts you follow. You can choose to temporarily hide Recommended for You posts," says the Instagram Help Centre.

One can switch it off by tapping on the three dot options button above the post and choosing the 'Hide' option.

On a related note, Instagram few days ago rolled out a new feature to boost its Live Video engagement. The Facebook-owned photo sharing app lets users send a Live Video invitation to friends using the Instagram 'Direct' feature. All they need to do is to tap on the Direct icon. They can send Live Videos they are watching or creating, to users.

"You can now send live videos to friends in Direct. With a single tap of the Direct icon, you can send your own live video — or a live video you're watching — to a friend or a group of friends to encourage them to join in the fun," said Instagram in a blog post.

When users are live, they would need to tap on the 'Direct' icon at the bottom of the screen and send an invitation.
