05 Jan Instagram Makes It Easier To Discover Your Favorite Things
In case you missed it, Instagram recently made a significant change to its app that could have a big impact – a positive one – on how you interact with your favorite content providers.
Instagram users can now more easily follow a specific topic they’re interested in by following hashtags. Users will still be able to follow accounts as before.
The upgrade is aimed to help you “discover more posts from the interests and communities you care about,” Instagram said in a release following the December 2017 update.
It’s now easier for Instagram users to discover photos, videos, and People relevant to their passions.
How to Follow Hashtags
Here’s how to use the Instagram app to follow a hashtag:
1) Tap on any hashtag in the app that interests you – whether it appears in your feed or you locate it via the search function.
2) At the top of the resulting hashtag landing page, tap on the “Follow” button. Several examples are shown below.
Once you follow a specific hashtag, the Instagram algorithm will pick and choose posts that feature that hashtag and display them in your feed, in Instagram Stories, and in the Following section of your profile.
The image below at right is an example of what a photo from a followed hashtag looks like.
You can unfollow a hashtag at any time.
To do so, simply tap the hashtag and then tap on the Following button.
