Instagram Hashtag – Why and how to use it
You can now follow hashtags on Instagram – Drumroll. But the feature still remains a mystery to some Instagramers who find it weird to follow a “Word” that has not life. Well except in Instagram world, where words are brought to life by means of sharing. I do not follow hashtags because it is enabled, but I follow hashtags for reasons I will share shortly.
On Instagram, when you opt in to follow a hashtags only your followers see them, hence some privacy is given. You can use hashtags to create a trend on Social media and make a post go viral. Hashtags can be used for some sort of online protest – but who takes that serious anyway. What annoys me about the Hashtags thing is the easiness of someone to spam it. Well, that’s not a case anymore because social media uses are getting wiser to spot something that is off the topic.
Anybody following #Easterday will see posts with #Easterday showing up on feed. Following hashtags is also a great way of keeping an eye on your online shops when they have promos or discounts, just like “Black Friday” shopping promo.
