New Instagram Feature Will Help You Figure Out Who To Unfollow

What's New No Comment

Instagram has been rolling out a new feature that allows users to group their following list into different categories.

The new “Following Categories” feature groups the accounts you follow into lists such as “Least Interacted With” and “Most Shown in Feed.” The categories use data from your Instagram activity for the last 90 days.  In calculating interactions, Instagram measures user actions such as liking posts and reacting to stories.

You can also sort your followers by the date you followed their account, either from earliest to latest or vice versa.

In a statement to TechCrunch, an Instagram spokesperson says:

“Instagram is really about bringing you closer to the people and things you care about – but we know that over time, your interests and relationships can evolve and change. We want to make it easier to manage the accounts you follow on Instagram so that they best represent your current connections and interests.”

In other words, Instagram users can filter out the noise from their feed by reviewing these new Following Categories.

What it Means for Users

If you are a fan of social media like me, you would have experienced the frustration of the time it takes to unfollow accounts. This new feature makes it easier for users to find accounts that might be clogging up your feed with multiple posts per day.

What it Means for Instagram

This puts Instagram ahead of its competitors such as TikTok and Twitter, which doesn’t have these features.

Impact for Marketers

The impact for marketers is still not clear but people are already talking about the lost of followers. But a good point is made by Search Engine Journal:

Looking at this a more positive way – if users trim down their Following list it could lead to more engagement as well. Users will see more content from the accounts they really care about, and have more opportunities to engage with them.

Whether or not this will be good for marketing, will be known in a few months.

How to access the feature?

To access the feature, go to your profile, then click on “Following”

Now look for the “sorted by” option which may have been set on default.

It was a delight to work with Nir, who went the extra mile to meet our demands in a timely manner. He really made our vision a reality by creating us a classic site, but moreover the relationship we formed is something our company really appreciates. It was a pleasure working with Nir and the team at Simplio Web Studio. We highly recommend them to all and we look forward to working and doing more business with them in the future.

After over two years of research we chose Simplio. We are so far very satisfied. These people answered the phone on a Sunday and fixed a problem that was not even their fault. It was the host company which I had chosen that had caused our site to go down.

Outstanding in both knowledge and professionalism.

They are now part of the Diastasis Rehab business team after working with them almost a year now. I cannot even imagine having another company managing my Presta shopping cart. After a bad experience with a programmer, I needed a new programmer (one that knew prestashop shopping cart) and most important one that I could trust. Finding all three was a difficult process! Lucky for me I found them. I cannot say enough about the diversity of services that this company provides. Every step of the way they make amazing suggestions to increase my sales and they get back to be right away either by email or phone. They have even created a simple and easy check out program for Presta Shop. They are actually a one stop shop! They updated my SSL, are setting up and changing my server to a dedicated one, setting up streaming of my DVD, website design, creating a specific program for address verification on Presta cart and handled the integration of Presta cart with my fulfillment house. I am now working on developing an APP with them

Simplio really helped me out of a jam.
