Can someone school me a bit in Instagram? Just joined (yes old man) and haven't really figured out how to get the most from it yet.

When I signed up I added loads of people from Facebook contacts / page likes but lots of people I don't know are adding me. How are they finding me? Some are eyewear companies who I suppose may have mutual contacts (although I'm not connected with them directly) but others are seemingly completely random.

When I added my first image lots of people I don't know have liked it. Is that likely to be down to the hashtags I used or the image showing up randomly in people's feeds?

When I click on Explore Posts I'm seeing about 50/50 sunglasses and large-chested south-east Asian ladies. Do I have any control over this or is that just normal for Instagram? Obviously I want to see less sunglasses.

You'll be getting likes from people browsing the hashtags and your posts will be appearing in other people's suggested posts feed based on what their friends are 'liking' and the stuff that you've liked.

Making your profile private should mean people you havent allowed to follow you wont see your posts?

I'm sure I get lots of photos of muscular women showing up on my suggested feed because I'm following spitfiredealer.

I'm not bothered about people following me, I was just curious as to how relevant but random folk (for example eyewear companies I'm not connected with in any way) are finding me.

Assume they get an email from instagram (like I did) that 'my contact' (you) has joined instgram. You came up on mine the other day.
