Instagram's obvious bid to compete with Snapchat by launching a Stories feature was, apparently, just the beginning.

Now the app will harness the power of Facebook's algorithmic expertise to begin surfacing Instagram Stories from people you don't already follow, according to a report from Techcrunch.

The suggestions will appear at the top of your screen and will be based primarily on your interests and the people you follow on the app.

When contacted by Mashable, the company confirmed that the reported changes are coming.

Suggestions will also be drawn from Stories that are popular on that day, accounts with frequently popular Stories, as well as Stories from accounts that already come up in your current Explore grid.

Adding a suggested users feature is an aggressive move into old territory in social media, one that has been met with varying degrees of enthusiasm, depending on the platform.
