You must be glad to know that Instagram will now allow the users to follow the hashtag.Yes, Instagram is Testing a Feature that Lets You Follow Hashtags on its picture-sharing social platform.
Currently, On Instagram you can follow other users and other users can follow you back. It is a system that works, but doesn’t help you stay on top of trending hashtags or custom-made hashtags.However, it was recently discovered by Twitter user Pippa Akram (via TNW) that Instagram appears to be testing out a new feature that lets the users follow hashtags instead. This means that whenever someone uses the hashtag that you follow, you will be able to see it. It seems that it would be quite interesting feature.

This new feature is actually handy because if there are specific posts that you enjoy, for example posts about #birds or #flowers, then instead of following multiple individual Instagram accounts, you would just follow the hashtag and get everything related to it. That’s simply WOW!
You can use apps like TweetDeck or Hootsuite on Twitter, to follow and keep tabs on specific hashtags rather manually searching for them each and every time. It seems to follow hashtags on Instagram would work the same way. It would also change the way of use of Instagram as we currently do.
Instagram will allow users keep better tabs on topics that matter to them. To follow hashtag could also be very useful for keeping tabs on breaking news.
Instagram is growing rapidly and new option to follow hashtags will help in faster expansion.
