This is Instagram’s new trick to make you waste more time – Times of India

Instagram is tweaking your feed so that you end up going through posts, promoted content and more that doesn’t belong to people whom you follow. This will result in an unlimited scroll experience and will force you to go through posts that Instagram thinks you would be interested in. So, what is Instagram changing? The moment you hit the end of new posts from people whom you follow and are greeted with the “You're All Caught Up” message, Instagram will continue to show you posts from people or brands you don’t follow. Instagram’s algorithms will decide which posts to show or not show. This means instead of shutting down the Instagram app after checking out all your followers posts, Instagram will make you spend more time on the app by showing random posts and ultimately wasting your tim...
