The use of the #Hashtag to promote your visual content has three main values to you,

  1. Hashtags dramatically increase the reach for your posts — which means you’ll get more Instagram followers
  2. Hashtags help you find people on Instagram with similar interests as you
  3. Hashtags help you do market research to learn about your competitors

Check out this visual example of how to determine interaction by the number of #Hashtags.

Hot off the press… instagram-happy-hashtag

Instagram released a new update that will now support emojis in hashtags. Huge news for Instagram fanatics.

You’ll just need to update your Instagram app…. NOW.

Until now, you couldn’t even press an emoji key while searching hashtags on Instagram. This change lets you create emojihashtags, unless its an eggplant (which has now been officially banned by Instagram HQ for violating their terms and conditions of use.).

So #Happy #Hashtaging
