You can now filter out weight loss-themed content on Instagram

Having received feedback from users who feel as though consuming weight loss-themed ads on their feeds can be damaging to them, and especially younger users, Instagram has now launched a filter that allows users to filter out this type of content.

This positive feature allows users to customise the suggested content on their homepage. The feature can be implemented by taking these four simple steps: Head to “settings” and click “ad”. Then click “ad topics”, and type in “body weight control” in the search bar. Lastly, select “see less”.

Selecting this content feature will not guarantee that weight loss ads will leave your feeds entirely, but it will dramatically decrease the likelihood of these ads appearing.
