Instagram will now let users follow hashtags: Here's how it works

If you don't know which hashtags to follow, Instagram also lists the hashtags other people follow in their profiles. But with the new update, Instagram will allow people to follow entire communities, instead of just singular entities. Photo-sharing platform, Instagram also keeps an eye on the latest trends and keep introducing a new feature for the better user experience.

Following a hashtag is as easy as following users.

Previously, there were two main ways to find photos and videos with a certain hashtag.

Clement has one doubt for City test; key man available
It was relief overflow at Liberty Stadium as the Jack Army beat The Baggies 1-0 to pick three points for the first time in seven Premier League games.

In order to follow the hashtags on Instagram, the user needs to search for his topic of interest which will allow the related hashtags to appear on the screen. When you're satisfied it is the actual topic you want to follow, open the hashtag page and then click on follow.

You can discover more hashtags you might be interested in by scanning the Related bar below it. Instead of trying to follow all the big stars such as Lebron James, Steph Curry and Russell Westbrook, you could just follow #NBA and then stumble upon silly clips like that one time Delonte West gave a young Gordon Hayward a wet willie. Hashtags can be identified as hobbies, passions or communities, anything having a connection to the post. Now you can do so even more easily as Instagram will now let you follow hashtags and see posts using them on your timeline.

If you have set your account to private, the hashtags you follow will only be seen by your followers.
