Now You Can Follow Hashtags on Instagram

Instagram new update follow hashtags

The Facebook-owned photo-oriented service has introduced another new feature today in its relentless quest to be your No.1 social destination. If folks are interested in dogs, food, or just about anything else that's been shared on the site, they can follow a hashtag and see public photos shared by users that have that hashtag attached. Instagram could also promote the hashtag as a paid placement in hashtag-related search results. This may help cut down on the spam concerns mentioned above, as (provided the algorithm works correctly) you'll only see the best content from each hashtag you follow. The company says it will only shows "top posts" from a hashtag too, so you don't have to worry about your feed being overwhelmed. We want to see what all of Instagram has to show us about #winterbreaktravel or #makeuptutorials so we never miss a beat. You can find these on any user's profile.

Instagram is rolling out a massive new update to its platform today.

Once you're on the individual tag field, you'll be able to see images tagged with the hashtag. Also, even if you unfollow a hashtag, it doesn't mean it's gone forever - you can still look up hashtags the old fashioned way.

Additionally, users can also downvote posts that they don't want to see from hashtags they follow.

Until now, hashtags were always a kind of take-it-or-leave-it addition to posts. "Instagram is making interests - and the communities that form around them - a big focus, and following hashtags is our first step". Now Instagram wants to make it easier to keep tabs on the things you love.

"Following hashtags is just the beginning of how we're giving you the tools to discover and be inspired by [the] community", the company said. Instagram will use the same privacy settings that it uses for following list.
