On Instagram you can now follow specific hashtags and watch videos, images or tutorials regardless of who publishes the content.
Instagram has always been a social network in which to follow friends and content creators, but today it is evolving with a new way of following the hashtag, in order to see the most important posts and stories on a topic on the homepage. Rather than having to search for content through the search or in the Explore tab, you can now follow the hashtags and see the best content in terms of images, videos, tutorials, directly through specific hashtags, regardless of who publishes the content.
Follow the Instagram 2017 hashtags
The novelty will require the implementation of smart filters from Instagram to prevent any questionable or spam content from being distributed via the hashtags followed. The function has the potential of helping users to see beyond their own social boundaries and to dive deeper into the niche communities that most interest them, making Instagram an endless stream of content. Moreover, the following hashtag could give the application targeting data for more effective listings and the opportunity to show more interstital announcements among the Stories, even if the company has stated that it is not currently focused on these potentials.
Instagram now you can follow the hashtags
Now the function has been released publicly and users will see a Follow button on the pages reached via the search or click on hashtag.
Instagram selects the most popular tags
Instagram algorithmically selects the best based on factors such as recency and quality; it means that just because someone puts a lot of popular hashtags in their posts doesn't mean you will see them necessarily, unless they are fantastic.
To eliminate spam and objectionable content, Instagram will use automatic and manual systems to report inappropriate posts and block their authors. Hundreds of people in its operations team will monitor users and automated reports to review content 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The company says it has made improvements over the past few months in how it collects and classifies hashtag content to ensure that what is shown in the hashtag pages is safe and uses ad hoc teams to analyze hashtag-related trends.
Instagram hashtag to bring the world closer
Instagram hashtags are another expression of Facebook's new global mission to "bring the world closer". Like Facebook groups, the directly usable hashtag allows users to explore content outside of their social sphere. If your friends have different tastes from you or you are simply sick of their selfies and sunsets, the following hashtag will personalize your experience to make Instagram your window on different contents.
