The most happening photo and video sharing platform called Instagram has come up with a new feature through which you can follow/unfollow any hashtag. Adding hashtags is not just a blindly followed trend, in fact, they do serve a purpose. They are used to find contents related to a particular point of interest. As soon as you type “#,” all public content that used the same hashtag is displayed. And recently, Instagram gave this feature a twist.

Unlike on Facebook and Twitter where hashtags serve just as a searching tool, Instagram, now allows you to follow hashtags as they’re an account onto themselves. As soon as you click follow, they will start appearing on your news feed, and you can also remove them when you’re done with it. Let’s see how you can follow/unfollow hashtags in Instagram on your Android or iPhone.
