How can I make posts from certain people appear higher in my Instagram feed?
This feature is only available in the Instagram app for Android and iPhone.
Favorites allows you to have more control over what you see in your feed on the Instagram app. When you add accounts to your favorites, new photos and videos they share will appear higher in your feed.
