Reels that are mainly obscured by text, fuzzy, have a watermark or label, or have a boundary around it, would not be suggested as often with the aid of the algorithm.
Instagram, a photo-sharing website owned by Facebook, is improving its algorithm in order to attract more unique content to the network. With the algorithm’s assistance, reels that are primarily concealed by text, fuzzy, contain a watermark or label, or have a boundary surrounding them would not be suggested as frequently.
Instagram usage surveys found that when content is recycled from other applications or is fuzzy, users have a “less satisfying” Reels experience, so it will start deemphasizing that content in its suggestion tech, said Devi Narasimhan, Instagram spokesperson.
On its @creators account, the company is also issuing fresh best practices to give Instagram users tips on how to create content that is likely to be used and supported, The Verge posted on Tuesday.
The team now advises that Reels users upload vertical videos that use music contained in Instagram’s catalogue or sounds they hear on Reels, according to the article.
Narasimhan said in an email to The Verge, “We’re building on what we’ve learned from Explore to recommend fun and entertaining videos in places like the Reels tab, and personalize the experience.”
Narasimhan said, “We are getting better at using ranking signals that help us predict whether people will find a reel amusing and if we should recommend it.”
They also recommend “starting a trend” that others might join in, such as dance crazes, as well as material that is “entertaining” and “fun.”
