Purging Instagram has become much easier with filters that show you accounts with which you rarely interact

Purging your Instagram is now much easier with new filters that allow you to see which accounts you have interacted less with.

  • Instagram now allows users to filter followers for & # 39; less interacted with & # 39;
  • The filter also shows "more displayed in the feed" and the orders followed first or last
  • It is made to help users manage their accounts and eliminate unwanted ones

A new Instagram feature allows you to discover your least favorite accounts by using filters that take into account likes, messages and more.

In addition to allowing users to sort by which accounts they interact less, the platform will also allow users to see which accounts appear most in their feeds and which accounts followed first and last.

The feature, launched on Thursday, is designed to help users manage their followers more closely according to Instagram.

To test the function, users can navigate to their followers and by touching the icon of their personal page in the lower right of the Instagram interface and then selecting the options in & # 39; categories & # 39 ;.

"Instagram is really about getting close to the people and things that matter to you, but we know that over time, your interests and relationships can evolve and change," the company said.

"Whether you graduate, move to a new city or become obsessed with a new interest and find a community, we want to make it easier for you to manage the accounts that follow on Instagram to better represent your current connections and interests."

The tools, which are now available to everyone who uses the application, can be used for a more personal purpose of eliminating former friends or acquaintances, and also gives an idea of ​​what you are seeing in your feed on a regular basis.

For example, if you often see posts from friends, memes accounts, or if you get most of their content from media brands or influencers.

The feature is remarkable, not only because of its novelty, but because it fits part of the wider Instagram agenda to renew how some of the key features of the platform work.

For example, in November, Instagram began testing the elimination of the ability to see how many likes I get a particular post.

The platform says it is part of an effort to make users feel happier and less aware of themselves online amid the concerns that social networks can contribute to low self-esteem and feelings of inadequacy in young people.

& # 39; These are young people. The idea is to depressurize Instagram, make it less of a competition, give people more space to concentrate on connecting with the people they love and the things that inspire them & # 39; & # 39 ;, said Instagram boss Adam Mosseri in an interview with Wired.

"We have to see how it affects how people feel on the platform, how it affects how people use the platform, how it affects the creative ecosystem."

In addition, the platform removed its "tracking" tab for a long time that allows users to see who likes specific posts.

Instagram said the function allowed harassment and other negative behaviors to rot on the platform.
