Instagram’s Account Status is now more comprehensive. This allows professional accounts to determine if content from their accounts is eligible for recommendation to other accounts. This new system allows users to know what to do if their content does not qualify.
Content creators who cannot reach new potential followers via the platform will find this feature useful. They can now see which posts or posts are blocking their eligibility.
Instagram stated that it knew that having Instagram recommend content was a great way to reach new users and grow your audience. “That’s why we want creators to be able understand our guidelines so that they can know if something has been posted or placed in their profile may have an impact on their reach to other followers,” the company said.
Instagram has also added the ability to disagree on the platform’s decision about content promotion eligibility. Users can nudge Instagram to review their content again in the event that the detection technology flags an issue with an account.
How can I check my account status?
Instagram Settings will show your Account Status. Users can find it by navigating to Settings>Account>Account Status. You will see any posts that prevent the account from being recommended to non-followers. The user will then be able to edit/remove the post or to disagree with the review decision.
Alerts about technical issues
Instagram will also add a new feature that will notify users when Instagram experiences technical difficulties. This has been an issue that has plagued Instagram for a while. This feature will initially be tested in the US before being expanded to other regions. Notifications will let users know when an issue that is mass-affecting has been resolved.
Instagram wrote in the blog post, “We won’t send out a notification for every outage. But when we see that people have questions and are confused, we’ll decide if something such as this could help clarify things.”
