You can follow hashtags on Instagram now, not just people

Facebook-owned Instagram has introduced the ability to follow hashtags.

This new feature has already rolled out to Instagram users by now. While most of us would prefer having more followers on Instagram, the company has decided that we can now follow not only people, but hashtags as well.

You will also be able to see all the hashtags your friends follow just like how you can see which accounts they follow.

Following a hashtag is as easy as following users.




Top photos and videos from any hashtags you follow will automatically get pulled into your feed, and recent Stories using the hashtags will appear in your Stories bar.

Anyone who uses Instagram on a regular basis already knows that the more hashtags you add to a photo, the more likes you'll probably get - that's why some hashtags are overrun with spam. However, if users want to unfollow any particular hashtag then that can also be done by simply tapping on the screen. When you're satisfied it is the actual topic you want to follow, open the hashtag page and then click on follow.

If you have set your account to private, the hashtags you follow will only be seen by your followers. If you want to discover new hashtags, you can always check out what other people are following when you check their profiles.

Following Twitter's footsteps of searching hashtags and staying connected with hobbies, passions and communities, Instagram on Wednesday launched a similar feature for its users.
