Instagram is planning to tell you who to unfollow
And now, Instagram is planning to help you get rid of the people you barely connect with.
We all have those people we follow on Instagram, whose posts we rarely see. They might be posting away, but the Instagram algorithm is designed in a way that prioritises posts from people you interact with more.
And now, guess what? The platform is planning to help you get rid of the people you barely connect with.
Instagram is planning to show categories such as 'Least interacted with' and 'Most interacted with' to help users filter out relevant content. Social Media researcher, Jane Manchun Wong, shared the screen-shot of the expected upcoming feature on the platform.
Instagram is testing to “group the accounts you follow to make them easier to manage”, such as:— Jane Manchun Wong (@wongmjane) October 19, 2019

The image also shows categories based on the type of content like Art, Comics, Travel and more. The feed suggest posts that are catered to users personal preferences. Posts similar to the ones you have previously liked and interacted with are more likely to be shown.
This might be a move to increase engagement on posts and make them more happening. This would further help us better understand our interests, and explore posts that are tailored to our interests. Aslo, Instagram has rolled out a new feature that notifies users when there are new episodes uploaded by your IGTV creator.
A recent update also suggets that Facebook is planning to help you organise Groups in sets. If you are member of too many groups, it might get difficult to individually track them.
