  • Instagram now lets you follow hashtags just like you follow people

But with the new update, Instagram will allow people to follow entire communities, instead of just singular entities.

Call them content creators, influencers, or maybe just fellow narcissists with a camera, but whether you like it or not, the people you follow on social media are how you get introduced to things such as news, memes or trends. The feature has been rolled out while keeping the millions of users who keep searching and adding appropriate hashtags to their posts for adding more relevance to the image or video. Earlier today, Instagram added a new feature which gives users the ability to follow hashtags, allowing them to more easily discover and stay up-to-do with topics and interests.

The feature will also offer live updates , including reminders to get off your bus or train when you are nearly at your stop. Google Maps recently introduced the motorcycle mode , keeping the large number of people traveling by motorcycles in mind.

You will see relevant hashtags displayed in the search results along with related accounts. You'll begin seeing top posts from that hashtag in your feed and some of the latest stories in your stories bar. Hashtags represent the many interests and passions of our community. If you have a private profile, the hashtags you follow will only be visible to your followers.

Either search for a hashtag you're interested in or tap on one from a post in your timeline and you'll see a pop-up telling you that following hashtags is now possible. However, Instagram reassures us that you can change your privacy settings to make sure only your followers are able to see those lists. Followed hashtags will also show up in your profile, if it's public, and other people's as well.
