You read correctly: This little "trick" is only working in June, so use it this month to get a little boost in Story views (as long as you're not shadowbanned). You won't boost your story views by 20%+, but my two main accs still noticed a growth of about ~15k views the last 2 days and why not take something "for free"? It's pretty simple: 1. Post a story (about what you normally post), but before uploading: 2. Add a hashtag of the pride month, for e.g. #pride 3. Make the hashtag (the text itself) big and move it outside of the story border, so nobody can see or click on it. 4. Notice a rainbow border instead of the normal story border. Due to this border, you're followers are (likely) more tempted to click on your story, because it's something new. Usually, they will even DM you, thus getting more engagement and therefore having a higher chance to trend with your story or get higher ranks on main page. (This even suggests your story a few ranks up to old / non-interested followers). You also have a slim chance to trend in these hashtags, as the pride hashtags are pretty trendy at the moment. Tips: - Only use one #pride hashtag per story - Rotate (don't use the same). Here is a list: https://ritetag.com/best-hashtags-for/rainbows - If you don't get the rainbow border at first, wait for 24hrs "to get rid" of your old stories or delete them. Have fun with this and exploit it as long as possible.
