Instagram may be reversing its horribly received TikTok-style overhaul and reducing the app’s constant barrage of recommendations, but that won’t stop recommended content from appearing in your feed. Turns out there’s a fix you might not be aware of; I didn’t even know it was a thing until Instagram manager Adam Mosseri casually mentioned it in one of his stories earlier this week.
Recommendations and suggested posts from your main Instagram feed can be snoozed for 30 days. Alleluia! And even better – it only takes a few taps.
How to Repeat Instagram Feed Recommendations for 30 Days
- Scroll through your main Instagram feed until you come across a registered post. These usually come with explanations as to why you’re seeing them, such as “because you watched a ____ reel” or “because you’re following ____”.
- Tap the X in the top right. By doing so, you will see a text confirming that the specific message has been hidden. But we don’t just eliminate a single recommendation, my friends. We want to be free from as many of them as possible.
- From the options listed, tap hold all suggested posts in the feed for 30 days.
- After that, a green tick will appear, with confirmation that your feed will not contain suggested posts for the next 30 days.
And with that, you are set. Keep in mind that deleting your suggested posts feed won’t stop you from seeing Instagram’s many in-app ads. But it’s a convenient way to take at least some better control over how the app works for you.
Don’t forget that you can also sort your feed chronologically by tapping on the Instagram logo in the top left and choosing Next.
