Instagram is an online content sharing and social networking platform which provides a quick and easy way to share media including pictures as well as video clips. Instagram was created by Stanford Graduates, Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger when they were merely 26 years old. In September 2012 Mark Zuckerberg’s biggest social networking site, Facebook acquired Instagram and since then the users of this app have multiplied terrifically.

This social media networking app allows you to share pictures or videos publicly as well as privately, depending upon your selected settings. In past two years, Instagram has evolved as one of the most popular platforms to share selfies because it is user friendly and is free from technical fussiness.

Usage of hashtag symbol (#) followed by a subject line while uploading a picture or video is the most common and simplest way to organize and categorize the uploaded media. It also allows the users to tag content of a particular subject and garner more views or audience from the online virtual world.

If you are the one, who loves clicking selfies and want people around the world to see them, then instagram is the right place for you. Using most popular or best hashtags for your selfies helps you to attract more traffic and adds to the number of your followers as well as number of likes online.

Most of the instagram users while uploading a picture use spur of the moment subject line like #whatabrightsunnyday, but since nobody is following it, so you cannot expect much action from it. Users explore pictures and videos on instagram by hashtags, therefore, using best or most popular hastags allows more number of people to find your photos. If a surfer is searching for some funny photos online and you have a picture with the hashtag funny (#funny) then, he will be able to view it and you never know, he might even like it or might even follow you.


Some of the best hashtags (#) for Instagram are as under:

  • #love

To get long term followers or to keep your followers engaged, it is best to put few post and communicating more by enhancing dialogue through the comments. When you add too many hashtags while describing your picture or video, it makes your posts look maladroit and gauche. So add the best hashtags which are relevant to your posts and spice up your social media account.
