Types of recommendations you can add

So in this Instagram Guide feature, there are three types of recommendations that you can make or add, namely:

1. Places

You can recommend a place such as a restaurant, tourist destination, city, and others. Then, you can search for the place in the search field, or take it from your own post.

If you want to take it from your post, make sure that you include the location when creating the post. For example, when I go to a place, I definitely add the location, so my posts and places I’ve visited will appear.
