It seems Instagram is the hottest social media platform to use these days. More people than ever are uploading their smartphone photos to their accounts. As a matter of fact, there are over 95 million photos uploaded daily. That is a lot of photos for people to like. Also, we have to remember that 8% of the accounts on Instagram are spam accounts. Add to that another 30% of the accounts that are inactive. (Statistics supplied by Instagram) This still leaves 65% of the accounts active and able to see and engage with your photos. But how do you reach through the constant noise? How can you be the light in an otherwise hazy mist of millions and millions of pictures? You do it by using Instagram hashtags.
If you have ever seen people use a ton of hashtags in their photo description, then you know what I am talking about. It’s a way to reach a broader audience other than your following. People are always using search to find cool pictures, and they do so by using hashtags. Hashtags on Instagram are probably more important than on any other social media platform. Sure, they are annoying and feels a bit spammy, that’s true. But they work!
