Instagram not only allows you to share images, videos, messages, among others with your followers, but also is one of the good sources of entertainment in your free time. You can simply scroll down your feed to see the latest updates from the people you follow or can watch reels (if you are in a mood to watch some short videos!). But, you cannot like every content you see on the app. Instagram also allows you to take more control over what you see on the app. Wondering how? You can see posts in chronological order, take a break from recommended posts, and adjust sensitive content.

Instagram informed about the same via a tweet saying, "Take more control over what you see on Instagram Here are a few ways: See posts in chronological order Take a break from recommended posts Adjust sensitive content." Want to know how you can use these features? All you will have to do is just follow a few steps mentioned below.
