- Instagram compiles a list of topics it thinks you're interested in inside the Instagram app itself, which is used to show you relevant ads.
- You can check the list for yourself with just a few taps into some of the Instagram app's deeper settings.
- My own list of supposed interests is very ... surprising. I can't say it's very accurate.

You can see what Instagram thinks you're interested in by going into the app's deeper settings options.The list of interests is, of course, related to ads and ad data. Instagram says your ad interests are based on a combination of who you follow, what posts you like or comment on, and other websites and apps you use. If you have a Facebook account, Instagram pulls data from there, too.
For example, I have no interest "Tyrol" (I didn't know what that was, but it turns out its a state in Austria). Nor do I care that much about the "Overwatch" game, or Mallorca, Spain, for that matter.Regardless, you can check your own list of topics of interest that Instagram has compiled about you to see if it's accurate.
