You can now follow hashtags in your Instagram feed

You can now follow hashtags in your Instagram feed”

Instagram says following a hashtag is just like following a friend. Starting now, users will be able to add hashtags related to their favorite subjects to their follow list alongside the brands, Instacelebs, and friends that already flood network with content. When you find a hashtag you like, open the hashtag page and tap on the follow button. You can find these on any user's profile. After all, if you can easily follow topics you're interested in, you're not only more likely to stay on a site like Facebook or Instagram, but you're also more likely to come back. Adding hashtags to your own posts is easy enough, but if you actually want to look at other photos/videos using certain hashtags, you need to head to the Discover page and manually search for them.

Instagram is not opening up its new hashtag-following feature to advertisers at the moment, according to the spokesperson. Instagram revealed Tuesday that it launched the ability to follow hashtags to help Instagrammers discover more posts from the interests and communities they care about, right in their feeds.

Once you're on the individual tag field, you'll be able to see images tagged with the hashtag. So maybe I will finally start opening Instagram as much as I open up Twitter or Snapchat.

The only potential problem with Instagram's new feature is the quality of posts that are going to show up within your feed.

"Every day, millions of people share photos and videos and tag them with relevant [and trending] hashtags", the company said in a corporate statement.

Instagram was first spotted testing hashtag following last month by Pippa Akram and The Next Web. Examples can be innocuous, like using a trending hashtag to try to get new followers, or malicious, like doing so to spread misinformation or otherwise controversial content. This downvoting feature is in addition to an automated and manual system that flags inappropriate posts and blocks their authors.
