Change is a good thing. It signals growth and opportunity, a new chance to improve.
Or, in the case of Instagram’s features updates, another chance to tee off vast swathes of your user base.
The planned “Recommended for You” feature was tested on select users and apparently was successful enough for a wider release as Instagram has now made it a part of the normal feed for all users.
As you can imagine, this new change to the photo and video social media platform was met with the usual uproar on the web.
While most social media mavens should be familiar with similar features on other platforms, particularly Facebook’s “Explore Feed” feature, many of the complaints lodged by Instagram users thus far center around how the “Recommended for You” feature is clogging up an already confusing photo stream.
