You know that horrid Instagram feature where your feed is starting to resemble your TikTok For You Page? Well good news, there’s a way to turn off the constant avalanche of recommendations and suggested posts from your main Instagram feed for 30 days. Hallelujah! And the best part? It only takes a couple taps.
Here’s How to Snooze Instagram Feed Recommendations:
- Scroll through your main Instagram feed until you come across a recommended post. These are usually accompanied by explanations for why you’re seeing them, such as “because you watched a reel from ____” or “because you follow ____.”
- Tap the X at the upper right. Upon doing so, you’ll see text confirming that the specific post has been hidden.
- However, ideally we would like to be rid of all suggested posts – not just the one. So from the options listed, tap on snooze all suggested posts in feed for 30 days.
- After that, a green checkmark will appear, with confirmation that your feed won’t contain suggested posts for the next 30 days. Yay!
Although, it is important to know that clearing your feed of suggested posts won’t stop you from seeing Instagram’s many in-feed advertisements – but it’s a way of taking greater control over how the app works for you!
Happy scrolling, friends!
