They will only appear once you have seen all the posts in the feed, reports TechCrunch.

If you want your followers to participate actively on your Instagram posts, start creating contests where you ask your followers to do a few easy steps to participate in the contest, that will not only make your profile famous, but you can also gain followers on Instagram fast. It has been made explicit that this section will be different from that of the typical main feed, by doing this, it gives users the visual option of disregarding these posts.

Speaking to TechCrunch, a spokesperson for Instagram notes that these posts will only appear once a user has seen all the new posts from people they actually follow. Its positioning within the home feed itself will only provide it with greater visibility.

User "itskamm", who is based in Cleveland, tweeted '@instagram stop with all the extra stuff! especially please take away these recommended people I follow in my feed! if i wanted to follow them i would'. The new feature has gone live quietly but it's not really the first time that Instagram is toying with the idea.

In case you need a helping hand on how to find hashtags to follow, simply check out the hashtags being followed by other people in their profiles.

Instagarm recently announced a feature where users can follow hashtags of their choice. These posts show up in your timeline, but they're not from people that you now follow. The idea was created to help users access updated stories and posts from interested events directly on their feed. Starting soon, Instagram app on Android and iOS device will show you recommended posts in your feed. The recommended content is, however, not optional and there is no way you can disable it.

Another Twitter user was also unimpressed by the new update.
