Instagram has just unveiled a new update that will change the way you use the app. Drum roll to….being able to follow hashtags! “The upgrade is aimed to help you discover more posts from the interests and communities you care about,” Instagram said in a release.
So here’s how it works: You search a hashtag that interests you in Instagram (i.e. shoes), and at the top of the hashtag landing page, you’ll see a “Follow” button. Once hitting “Follow,” you’ll be able to see the best posts under that hashtag in both your Instagram feed and stories bar. As applied to your followers list, other users will be able to see what hashtags you follow by tapping the “Following” section on your profile. To keep things organized, your “Following” list will be separated by “People” and “Hashtags.” Try it out!
