Facebook owned Instagram is copying features bluntly and boldly from other story players (ahem Snapchat!). Today Instagram has rolled out a new feature for both Android & iOS mobile applications, “Following Hashtags”
Following hashtags is no different from following your friends and families on Instagram platform. Search for something trending or of your interests, tap on the hashtag and you will have the option to follow it.
Your feed will be refreshed to show you content from your followers and from all the hashtags which you follow. Do note your stories may also show up content stories basis the hashtags you are following.
In Profile section under ‘Following’ tab you can now see 2 sections Following – Hashtags & People.
To be honest I am happy with this feature addition because of 2 reasons
- They added a new (useful) feature and
- They did not Copy
Jokes aside… its an useful features for those who wish to keep themselves updated on some important hashtags maybe related to a trending event or maybe planning a vacation can help you follow relevant hashtags to plan itinerary. With a better understanding of this feature I am sure you will end up following hashtags more (than people) only because to get know-how, updates and see trending events first.
Like here are some interesting hashtags you can follow.. Do add up more in the comments section for others to check them out and follow
