Hi there,

Does anyone know what is the meaning of the blue colour in a friend of mine on Instagram? it is the first time i see that and i am wondering what is going on with this. In the other profiles this button is white and not blue.
thanks

Hi,

Are you following that account? Do the other accounts you follow have this button in blue? You can try to unfollow and follow them back to see if it reverts to white.

Hello again,

If your friend has turned off the option Include your account when recommending similar accounts people might want to follow in their privacy settings, then the button may appears in blue.

This is what some Instagram users have noticed.
