Instagram could let you follow hashtags soon

Instagram is testing a new feature with a small fraction of its user base. As spotted by Pippa Akram and The Next Web, some users can now search for a hashtag and follow this tag in particular.

Instagram used to feel like a carefully curated community. Now, thanks to the algorithmic feed, all the funny posts, weird accounts and niche content has appeared to be relocated to the very bottom of your feed.

Instead, it feels like Instagram is promoting posts that is going to generate a lot of involvement — baby photos, outrageous things and Taylor Swift’s teasers for her new albums. In other terms, Instagram now feels like a tiny Facebook.

Maybe this isn’t the solution, but if you’re a fan of @ihavethisthingwithfloors but don’t find those photos anymore, you might soon be able to follow the #ihavethisthingwithfloors hashtag.

As the screenshot reveals, Instagram isn’t going to drastically change your feed. The service is going to select popular and recent posts. And you’ll is again be able to follow things based on your interests and not your social graph.
