TECH UPDATE : Instagram Update : Now you can make anyone your favorite, this special feature is coming
Facebook-owned platform Instagram is now testing another new feature. After the introduction of this feature of Instagram, users will be able to mark (save) any other users as favorites. English technology website The Verge has first given information about this new feature of Instagram.
The biggest advantage of marking favorites is that the posts of those you mark as favorites will appear first in your feed. Alessandro Paluzzi, a mobile developer, first noticed this feature of Instagram and shared it on Twitter. Let us tell you that Instagram has been testing different features for the last four years regarding Favorites.
If a user marks any other user as a favorite, then he will also get information about the one who has been marked as a favorite. In such a situation, users marked Favorite will be able to share a photo with only Favorites instead of just their entire followers.
Another advantage of this feature of Instagram is that you will be able to have complete control over your timeline (feed). If you do not want to see posts from all those people, then you will be able to set it to Favorites, after which you will see the feed of only those people whom you have marked as favorite.
Usually, users follow all types of accounts, after which feeds start appearing on their timeline in any way they do not want to see. In such a situation, this new feature is going to prove to be very useful for them, although The Verge says that it is not yet clear whether Instagram will release this feature under the same name or it will be introduced under a new name.
