It has a distinctive feature that confines photos to a square shape or similar to Kodak’s Instamatic and Polaroid images, in contrast to the 16:9 aspect ratio now typically used by mobile device cameras. Now Instagram also has a hash tag feature similar to twitter and some other social networking sites with hash tag support feature.
Hash tags provides a means of grouping messages, since one can search for the “hash tag” and get the set of messages that contain it. Marking keywords or topics that are composed of a single word or phrase beginning with a sharp or the number symbol (#) and with no spaces or punctuation. Instagram hash tags allows web search engines to find and categorize messages, keywords, post or pictures and can be used in every single one of this category.

It’s pretty easy to use Instagram hash tags to get likes. Instagram let users to use up to 30 hash tags at a time. You can, however, delete older hash tags and post another 30 more new hash tags.
