Instagram is a photo sharing app that combines social networking. It enables users to click pics and modify them through digital filters available through Instagram and then share them on different social networking platforms like Twitter and Facebook.
Launched in 2010, Instagram has introduced a number of digital filters in it app for users to tweak their shots. One of their recent updates is the introduction of Instagram hashtags.
The infographic shows the top 30 instagram hashtags popular among users today. #Love, #instagood and #me have occupied the top 3 slots on the list. While #love has close to 7 million photos uploaded in it, the 30th on the list #followme has 1.5 million photos.
Initially, this feature was available only to the iPhone and iPad users, but very soon even Android users could access Instagram through their smart devices.
The concept of hashtags involves users tagging the photos with specific and relevant words rather than generic ones in order to highlight such photographs to like-minded Instagrammers.
Accordingly, users could now make their submissions to specific hashtags and have it shared on social networking sites. People looking for Instagrams in these hastags sections will now be able to access such photos easily.
