Instagram now lets you follow and see hashtags on your timeline By Ida Torres

If you have a few favorite hashtags on Instagram that you keep your eye on, the only way to do so until now has been to search for them and see what's newly tagged with them (unless a third-party app had the option to follow them).

Instagram now lets you follow hashtags, as well as accounts. The feature has been rolled out while keeping the millions of users who keep searching and adding appropriate hashtags to their posts for adding more relevance to the image or video. All you need to do is search for your hashtag of choice, tap it and hit the blue Follow button that pops up at the top of the screen. Once the user started following the hashtag, then they will start seeing posts related to that hashtag in their feed and the most recent stories in their stories bar.

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz speaks after season-ending ACL injury
It was evident when Carson was out of the game, you saw Nick come in and come back and lead us to victory in that game. His fourth TD pass came after he tore his ACL. "He's a veteran player who has played and won a lot of games".

"Today we're introducing the ability to follow hashtags, giving you new ways to discover photos, videos and people on Instagram", the company wrote in a blog post. Some popular hashtags are used unnecessarily which could crowd the user's feed, to avoid which the user can unfollow the hashtag anytime. Users can click on the "Follow" button, which is placed right below the hashtag. After that Instagram opens a page dedicated to all the posts under the same hashtag.

Instagram users can now follow hashtags with their accounts, as the social media platform aims to make it easier for people to connect with relevant interests and hobbies. Stories with the hashtag will also appear on the Stories bar alongside Stories from people you follow.
