    Follow Instagram Hash Tags
    Instagram, which is one of the most used social media around the world is now bringing new updated features to its users, not long ago they informed us that they are testing messager app for direct messaging. Let's see what they had to say about the new follow hashtag feature on their official site.

     Instagram had this to say:
    “Everyday, millions of people share photos and videos and tag them with relevant hashtags. Hashtags represent the many interests and passions of our community. To make these posts even more discoverable, we’re introducing hashtags you can follow,”


    Like I said earlier this feature is just like following a profile, and it is also similar to following a friend. It's pretty easy to follow any hashtag on Instagram. Simple search the keyword, and you will see the new follow button displayed in the search results with other related accounts

    Ones you have found a hashtag you like, open the hashtag page and tap on the "follow" button. From then one, you will start seeing top posts from that hashtag in your feed and stories bar.

    You can also unfollow a tag whenever you want. Also, you can check the hashtags other people follow, in their profiles.

    You can also protect your privacy the way it is on profiles, when you follow a hash tag on Instagram, you can always set the "privacy settings" to only show the tags you follow on Instagram to yourself.
