If your friends liked something on photo-sharing social network Instagram, it might now show up on your feed - even if you do not follow that particular person.

This latest change to Instagram feeds is set to deliver lots of fresh content to users. "Hiding" the posts will not permanently remove them from the main feed but it will hide them until the user has gone through all of the posts from accounts they are actually following. However, according to a report by TechCrunch, users will see these recommended posts while browsing through their news feed rather than seeing just the posts from the users they follow.
