Instagram has removed a feature that some users found to be a little "stalkerish."

The "Following tab" allows people to see their friends’ "likes", "follows" and "comments".

Its original goal was to help people discover new content they may like.

However, it sometimes gave users too much information about their friends' private or embarrassing Instagram activity.

The company said it has already started removing the "Following tab" and it will be gone by the end of the week.

After that, Instagram said its fans should use the "Explore tab" to find new people and content.
