To improve your Explore page suggestions on Instagram, interact with content and creators that you enjoy. By liking, commenting, and saving posts, you not only encourage engagement but also signal to the algorithm what you want to see more of. Additionally, you can teach the algorithm what you don't like by selecting 'Not interested' on posts that don't interest you. This will help the algorithm adjust future suggestions accordingly and avoid recommending similar content. The same method can be applied to suggested posts on your feed, and you can also hide ads that don't interest you.
So keep it simple: Like what you like, comment on things that catch your eye, and save posts you want to see again. It's a win-win for everyone - the creator gets engagement and encouragement, Instagram shows you more similar content, and you have a good time on the interwebs.
For a more systematic approach, users can select 'Not interested' on posts they're not interested in, either on the Explore tab or in their feed. By doing so, the algorithm will adjust future suggestions and avoid recommending similar content. The 'Not interested' option can also be used to hide ads that don't interest the user. To gain more insights into why certain posts are recommended, users can tap on each post, select the three-dot icon, and choose 'Why you're seeing this post.' This feature provides users with information that can help them make adjustments to their usage patterns.
You can get more insights into what's informing the algorithm's selections if you tap each recommended post, select the three-dot icon, and select 'Why you're seeing this post.' From here, you can adjust your usage patterns accordingly.
