How Instagram Feed Works

Instagram Feed is a place where you can share and connect with the people and things you care about. When you open Instagram or refresh your feed, the photos and videos we think you care about most will appear towards the top of your feed. In addition to seeing content from people and hashtags you follow, you may also see suggested accounts that are relevant to your interests.

All posts from accounts you follow on Instagram will appear in your feed. Instagram does not hide posts from the people you follow.

Instagram's technology uses different ways, or signals, to determine the order of posts in your feed. These signals are used to help determine how your feed is ordered, and may include:

  • Likelihood you’ll be interested in the content
  • Date the post was shared
  • Previous interactions with the person posting

At times, you might see a post from a few days ago in your feed. This is to make sure you don't miss a post from someone you follow.
