Instagram is one of the most popular image and video sharing platforms on the planet. It not only enables users to share their creative content and shop from its platform, but it also enables them to follow their favourite artists and creators. This in turn starts a cycle wherein users see suggestions on Instagram that are tailored to their likes and dislikes. These suggestions appear in Instagram’s Explore section. While these suggestions are great, sometimes they can also prevent Instagram users from exploring new things and more diverse content.

Thankfully, Instagram has settings that can enable its users to reset or even change the Explore section in the app. However, do remember that Instagram Explore is all about personalising content for you and ultimately, the feed will start curating and reflecting exactly what it interprets is to your liking.
