    To create groupings of content - that will make it easier for people who follow the topic to find your content without actually knowing that you exist.

    So if I use # Tag on Instagram then my photos will appear in search result for that particular search term?

    Yes.

    But you should probably open the app and play around with it. See how "influencers" are using them. There's no point targeting a search term nobody uses, or one where there are too many heavy hitters.

    Here's one I use a lot: instagram.com/explore/tags/doggress/

    I think its for influence to associate your post with trending posts

    Well, have you ever heard of SEO? Now that you're on this platform, I'm sure you did. So keywords and hashtags are pretty much similar in nature. If a user searches a hashtag to go through some sort of content, let's say #beautifulgirls

    If your post has that hashtag, there's a slight chance of being visible.

    Hashtags is similar with keywords. It makes easier for users to find your post, pics or page if you apply it correctly. You need to understand how users can look for your product and which words they gonna use

    Hashtags are an important way to expand your Instagram audience. When you use a hashtag, your post will appear on the page for that hashtag. If you use a hashtag on your Story, it could be included in the relevant hashtag Story, which also appears on the hashtag page.

    Instagram users can search specific hashtags to find content they like. If someone searches a hashtag that you used in one of your posts, there is a chance your post will be visible.

    Popular hashtags may have hundreds or thousands of people using them hourly so there's a chance your post may get buried and not seen.

    They are used to categorize content and make it more discoverable. Hashtags are clickable. Anyone who clicks on an Instagram hashtag or conducts an Instagram hashtag search will see a page showing all the posts tagged with that hashtag.

    A hashtag is a keyword or group of keywords with a pound sign as well as hashtags reside in the archival cataloging of topics and discussions.

    If you plan to promote something, you need to select popular hashtags related to your topic and use them. 3 or 4 might be enough.

    When you tag someone or a brand on instagram, they get a notification and are instantly directed to your post. This means that they'll be much more likely to like or comment on your picture, so increasing your engagement.

    In theory, yes, but in practice, if you do not have a brand yourself, then this practically does not give organic entries from the side of the brand's subscribers. All the necessary information can be submitted there in the Stories. If we are talking about an ordinary tape, then yes, the mechanism is more classic and therefore reliable.

    To sort content in some way, to help users find wanted information more quickly, to better target audience while you are creating posts, to connect a group of posts that will be under the same hashtag, and so on.
