    Anybody has the same feeling? Hashtags are really lost their functions except bring few bot likes, which is nothing for bigger accounts..

    If you get 10k+ use tags with 10m+ posts
    1k-10k use tags 5m-10m posts
    500-1k tags 1-5m
    under 500 use 100k-1m

    I hope it help, good luck

    Yep. Hashtags definitely aren't sorted the same way they used to be, and this has dramatically lowered my followers per day.

    My point was... hashtags are not bring me more organic followers. If they dont bring more organic followers, why we use them even, maybe, hashtags give our accounts more exposure, which I doubt. I believe the organic followers are from explore page.

    Instagram completely changed the algorithm switching from hashtags gaining followers to explore.
