Instagram is rolling up its sleeves for keyword searches. It was announced that new support will be given. Instagram started to gain different features from the moment it switched to Facebook. While the new button change was not welcomed by the users on the Instagram side, there is a new feature that is really useful for users. Instagram is finally improving its ability to search using keywords.
The days of being able to search Instagram using only tags or account names are finally coming to an end. Instagram announced that it will add support for keyword searches. This feature is first offered to users in the English-based version of the application in several countries. The feature, which is currently uncertain whether it will be available to all users, has been expected for some time and has been desired.
Until this feature, Instagram users were mostly able to search for content using tags. This, although useful in some situations, could make it difficult to get the photos or videos you wanted. New options are being added to the options currently available for keyword search. Instagram has confirmed to The Verge that it will use multiple factors to determine what content is served in keyword searches, including headlines used in posts. Machine learning of AI will be used to bring high quality content to the top of results.
It seems like Instagram plans to limit keyword searches for certain terms. An Instagram spokesperson said he could search for other keywords that do not violate general interest topics and rules. Keyword search is currently available to users in countries such as the USA, Canada, and the UK.
