Wreck Your Instagram Experience By Following Hashtags

Social media platforms including Facebook, Twitter and Instagram have specific data collection systems which collect the information and requirement of the users to work for the betterment of the application.

The privacy settings still remain the same, meaning that if your Instagram account is private, only your followers will be able to view which hashtags you follow, and vice versa. 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. Now it's even easier to stay connected with the interests, hobbies, passions and communities you care about. Users can click on the "Follow" button, which is placed right below the hashtag. As Instagram explains, following a hashtag is just like a following a friend: just search for a topic that fascinates you and tap any hastag that is visible, and on top of the results page, you will see a follow button. But in an update beginning rollout today, Instagram is trying to change that by letting people follow hashtags for the first time. Users can also unfollow these hashtags if they don't find them relevant anymore.

In order to follow the hashtags on Instagram, the user needs to search for his topic of interest which will allow the related hashtags to appear on the screen. Instead of trying to follow all the big stars such as Lebron James, Steph Curry and Russell Westbrook, you could just follow #NBA and then stumble upon silly clips like that one time Delonte West gave a young Gordon Hayward a wet willie.

If you have a public profile, anyone will be able to see which hashtags you follow.
