In a move to become more personal, photo-sharing app Instagram has updated its Explore function to show users you may want to follow.
Under the Explore tab, there is a new People section that highlights new and engaging accounts to follow, with a preview of three of their photos. Personalised to each individual user, these accounts are based on how often they post, who you follow, and who your friends follow. There are also editorial suggestions. As this new function is created via an algorithm to personalise it to each user, it won't create the instant Insta-celebrities like the previous versions, which showed similar accounts to all users.
A quick look at mine showed a selection of distant friends, a few re-made accounts that I used to follow, and some celebrities and clothing chains.
