Instagram Testing Putting Posts In Your Feed That You Might Like

Instagram Testing Putting Posts In Your Feed That You Might Like

As Instagram describes, following a hashtag is similar to how you'd follow another user. To start following a hashtag, users can search for a topic they're interested in or just tap on a hashtag on any post. If you have a private account on Instagram, only your followers can see the hashtags that you follow. You can, of course, unfollow a hashtag whenever you want, so you have that option should you end up following any hashtags of questionable nature. That means just because someone punches in a ton of popular hashtags on their posts doesn't mean you'll necessarily see them unless they're great. Don't think you can rack up views by piling on a bunch of hashtags.

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.

Instagram promises that there will be more of these types of changes to come.

Twitter has also announced a new feature that will make social media much more #convenient.

Until now, hashtags were always a kind of take-it-or-leave-it addition to posts. It could also pitch brands on creating sponsored hashtags that people would be able to follow.

Instagram is giving users another tool for going deeper on photo and video topics that interest them. So only follow the ones that you're most obsessed with. Instagram also said that it will use automated and manual systems to flag down inappropriate posts and block their posters.
