Customize Your Favorites Feed on Instagram

Do you know how to change or customize your favorites feed on Instagram? Instagram is one of the famous social media platforms. Most people use Instagram for posting their photos and stories. Later on, you can see all your’s posts in Instagram’s feed. But Instagram’s Favorites feed shows you posts only from friends or people on your Favorites list, in chronological order. Based on your activity Instagram will create an automatic Favorites list, but you can tweak that list similar to the Close Friends list for your Instagram Stories.

Important Note: Remember that this feature is still rolling out at the time of writing in February 2022, which means you may not have access to use it yet. Continue to update the Instagram app until you see the feature available.

What Is Instagram’s Favorites Feed?

Besides the default Home feed (algorithmically sorted feed), Instagram is adding two new feed views such as Favorites and Following (a chronological feed). So there are three Instagram’s Feeds views.

Home Feed:

Instagram’s default Home feed displays IG posts based on your activity and interests by including those from the users you do not follow.

Following Feed:

This feed displays only the posts from the people accounts you follow. The following feed shows posts in chronological order.

Favorites Feed:

In the meantime, the Favorites feed allows you to view posts from your all favorite people whose posts you do not want to miss. You can add such people’s accounts to a Favorites list and see their new latest content from the past thirty days. Instagram will not notify those users when you add or remove them from the Favorites list.
