“Picked for You” is a new channel located within the Explore tab of Instagram. It features videos that have been curated especially for each of us, based on topics and interests we follow and/or engage with the most. I think the most interesting part of “Picked for You” is that it focuses solely on video, proving once again that video on Instagram – after having grown by 150% over the past 6 months – is definitely the future of the platform.
