Following Instagram Hashtags
If you want to see posts and stories related to a particular hashtag, you should first follow the popular hashtag of your topic. To follow a hashtag on Instagram, you must enter the hashtag page; there are two ways for doing that:
• Use the post that used the hashtag, click on the hashtag to enter that hashtag page.
• Insert the Tag tab in the Explore section of Instagram and search for your own hashtag. Now enter posts and to see the hashtags.
Now that you enter the hashtag page, you will see an option on the top of the page called Follow. So, you can click on it to add the hashtag to the followed hashtag section of the profile.
From now on, all its new posts and stories will be displayed on the Instagram feed.
How to Unfollow Followed Hashtags?
Many users, after following the hashtag on Instagram, decide to unfollow the hashtag for various reasons, such as the high number of new posts. Just go to your Instagram profile to do this. Then enter the Hashtags section in the Following part and unfollow the hashtag. You can also enter the hashtag page (the same part that you have followed the hashtag) and click on it, then unfollow the followed hashtag.
How do Followed Instagram Hashtags Appear on the Instagram Feed?
As an Instagram user, you’ve probably followed a number of users and observed posts on their Instagram first page! User posts are displayed along with their username on the front page and you can see the number of likes and even comments on that post.
The post hashtags are slightly different from users posts! If you’ve followed a hashtag, you will only see some posts from that hashtag. Based on Instagram algorithms, posts that you may be interested in are displayed on the Instagram first page. Because if Instagram wants to show you all your favorite hashtags, there are thousands of posts daily on your Instagram first page that only bothers you. For this reason, Instagram, based on your activities on this social network, shows you only a limited number of posts related to the following hashtags.
If you have followed a specific hashtag, Instagram displays the name of the following hashtag, instead of the username of the person who has published that post:
In the image above, the hashtag user has followed #beauty and the Instagram displays the post of this hashtag. The name of the hashtag is displayed instead of the username. And of course, the username of the person sharing the image is below the hashtag.
It’s interesting to know that Instagram when displaying your followed hashtags, instead of displaying its username, displays the name of that hashtag. On the other hand, instead of displaying the stories individually, all the stories that are shown as a result of the followed hashtag will be on one story.
The above image shows the stories related to the #beauty hashtag. If you open that story, all the stories that users share with the hashtag will be displayed to you. So, hundreds of stories won’t be on your profile and will not hurt you. And you can easily see the stories of this hashtag. Another important point is that in the story section, you will see that hashtag instead of the username, and the user name of the person sharing that story can be seen below the hashtag.
One important point!
In every hashtag that you follow, there are plenty of cool posts you like, and there are posts that you do not like to see! By liking and inserting a comment below the posts of that you are interested in, Instagram will find out which posts you’re looking for and on the Instagram first page will show you posts that you have liked. So if you follow any hashtag, just like the posts you love. And if you are not interested in the post, do not like them, otherwise, Instagram will show you posts like these, therefore, you’ll be annoyed.
Also, if you do not like the post, just click on … at the top right of that post and select Do not Show for this hashtag so you do not see other posts like it on your Instagram feed.
Note that some hashtags, in addition to being specific, may be brand names or even special terms used on Instagram! For example, if you like animals, you may follow the goat hashtag and expect only the pictures of this animal to be displayed! But the fact is that if you search this hashtag on Instagram, many athletes use the word goat (summarized as the term greatest of all time), and if you follow this hashtag, many of the athlete posts appear on your feed page. Of course, this problem can easily be solved in a few days; just click on … in unrelated posts, and select the Do not show for this hashtag option. Over time, Instagram finds out that your goal is to follow the hashtag on Instagram and only show you the posts you are looking for. After a few days of following hashtags and hiding unrelated content, you can easily view your content in the Instagram feed and enjoy following of hashtags on Instagram.
