You can now follow hashtags on Instagram, not just people
If you find yourself constantly looking #Android on Instagram, you can now follow that hashtag, so you’re always kept up to date.
We follow all sorts of accounts on Instagram, whether it’s a celebrity, a cute cat, or Android Authority. With the latest update, however, you can now follow hashtags. As the company explains, following a hashtag is just like a following a friend: search a topic that you’re into or tap any hashtag you see, and on top of the results page, you will see a follow button. If you follow #Android, you’ll see relevant posts from that hashtag in your feed and your stories bar. You will be able to unfollow your hashtags the same way.
Just like how you can see which accounts your friends follow, you will be able to see all the hashtags that they follow as well, but Instagram reassures us that you can change your privacy settings to make sure only your followers are able to see those lists.
