You Can Now Follow Hashtags on Instagram!
In addition to following your friends, influencers and favourite brands on the app, you can now follow #mydubai #ladiesnight , #regram - and just about any other hashtag that tickles your fancy.
So, how does following Instagram hashtags work?
Fortunately, it's pretty easy.
Following a hashtag is just like following a friend or influencer.
To get started, search for a topic you’re interested in or tap on a hashtag from any post.
You’ll see relevant hashtags displayed in your search results along with related accounts. When you find a hashtag you like, open the hashtag page and tap on the "Follow" button.
You will now be able to seeing the top posts from that hashtag in your feed, and some of the latest stories in your stories bar.
You can always unfollow a hashtag at any time, just like you can unfollow other users on Instagram. It's also worth noting that you can't follow shadowbanned or restricted hashtags.
Want to find more hashtags to follow?
To give you more ways to find hashtags you might like, you can check out the hashtags other people follow in their profiles.
Similar to people you follow, hashtags you follow respect your privacy settings.
If you set your account to private, the hashtags you follow will only be visible to your followers.
