Instagram can now categorize the accounts that we follow according to the level of interaction that we maintain with them, thus facilitating the cleaning of its subscriptions.
Normally, to find a tracked account, you had to go through the search bar or scroll through the subscriptions to the one you were looking for. The “Subscriptions” tab is now separated into two categories, “Subscriptions with which you interacted the least” and “Subscriptions most often displayed in your news feed”.
The application is based on your last 90 days of activity to sort. It is also possible to sort your subscriptions chronologically, starting from either the oldest or the most recent. The “Sort by” button is located under the “Categories” tab.
Pro tip: You can also sort accounts from earliest to latest followed. Who was your first follow? 👀
