How does it work?

Suppose in the previous few days you have liked clothing-related content or if you like some tips and tricks on clothing, like how you can fold your shirt properly, or if you’ve interacted with any content related to clothing specifically, then you might get to see a lot of ads related to that, and you might also get to see some memes related to clothing.

The Instagram algorithm, which shows you the related content you’ve interacted with in the past, is known as the “For You” page. So, when you open the Instagram app, the homepage you see is the “For You” page. On this page, you can see content from people you follow, content you’ve liked in the past, and content related to niche-specific posts.

Can you reset the “For you page” on Instagram?

If you want to reset the “For You” page, simply unfollow some of the Instagram accounts you are currently following. Additionally, when you come across a post that is irrelevant to your interests, tap on the three dots and select “I am not interested.”

If you repeat this process for about 1 or 2 days, you will notice that your “For You” page has been completely refreshed with new content that aligns with what you like, comment on, or interact with in any way.
