'To make these posts even more discoverable, we're introducing hashtags you can follow'.

Instagram just made it a whole lot easier to populate your feed with things you're actually interested in.

In order to follow a hashtag, you would first need to search for a topic of interest. For following a hashtag, search a topic and you will see relevant hashtags displayed in search results along with related accounts. Which also means you're going to want to know how to unfollow hashtags on Instagram, because finding the flawless balance of familiar and new content is definitely going to take some fine-tuning. If you have a private account on Instagram, only your followers can see the hashtags that you follow.

Now when searching for your favorite hashtag, you'll see a new button at the top of the page that lets you "follow" it.

New Harry Potter Game Exists That Will Let You Actually Attend Hogwarts
Rowling's Wizarding World of Harry Potter has been announced that will allow players to create their own character. An exact release date hasn't been revealed just yet, but Jam City has said the game will be released next year.

Twitter says the "threads" feature will be available on iOS, Android, and Twitter.com in the coming weeks. Hit follow the hashtag. Ogle wants to bring the same touch to Instagram's hashtags. Instead of trying to follow all the big stars like Lebron James, Steph Curry, and Russell Westbrook, you could just follow #NBA and then stumble upon silly clips like that one time Delonte West gave a young Gordon Hayward a wet willie.

Ogle also explained that following hashtags on Instagram can be a bit tricky. On the top-right corner, you will see that paper plane icon for DMs. You can find these on any user's profile. So only follow the ones that you're most obsessed with.

If this is just the beginning, we're looking forward to seeing what other new and revolutionary ways Instagram and Facebook can think of to connect communities with users.
