Ok, I know, following hashtags on instagram is old news at this point. When they announced the new functionality a couple of months ago I figured I would see how I felt about it before making a post on Paisley Rosie. Honestly, I love it. The ability to follow hashtags has completely changed the way I use the platform!
Previously I would use hashtags for things like my new tea tuesday series (which as a side note has been intentionally put on pause because at this point I have WAY too much tea in my cabinet to use up). Now that the follow functionality has been activated I not only am using them more in my own posts, and being more intentional about those I use, but I tend to elect to follow a hashtag before a page since my feed immediately bursts with new content to explore that is tailored towards the images I am looking to consume.
Here are some of the favorites that I have been looking at lately:
Do you have hashtags that you have been following since the update? Tell me your favorites! I’d love to add some more!
