Google Maps reviews now support hashtags because those are hip and cool

Tuesday, November 27th, 2018

Despite its best efforts, Google Maps isn't quite as easy to use for restaurant hunting as Yelp. But the Mountain View tech giant isn't about to give up anytime soon: it has quietly added support for the ultimate social media tool - the hashtag - so users can more easily find reviews that identify #datenight spots or places that are #wheelchairaccessible, for example.

Google confirmed the feature addition to TechCrunch, stating that it arrived just over a week ago on Android and has so far only been announced to members of Google Maps' Local Guides program.

Friday, September 21st, 2018

Instagram goes through a lot of changes in Facebook's testing labs. While some of them are just bad, like algorithmic timelines, some end up being useful. Take this latest one, for instance, where there might be wholly separate section to add hashtags to your posts without having to keep them in your captions. 

This comes courtesy of Jane Wong on Twitter, who has a pretty good track record with Instagram and Facebook tests.

They're already on basically every single major social media service (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and even Google+), and now, they're making a much more prominent appearance on YouTube as well. On both web and mobile, hashtags are starting to show up above titles for videos that have them in their descriptions.

Basically, for videos that have hashtags in their descriptions, YouTube will now display the first three right above the title.

Hashtags and profile links now work in Instagram bios

Wednesday, March 21st, 2018

Starting today, profile links and hashtags in Instagram bios will work the way they do elsewhere on the platform: as clickable links. Instagram is billing the functionality as "a new way to express yourself and the things you care about."

When you type "#" or "@" in your bio, a list of suggested hashtags and profiles to add will pop up. You've been able to follow hashtags on Instagram since late last year; now, if there's one you're all about, you can let everyone know and give them a convenient way to check it out, right from your profile.

You can follow hashtags on Instagram now, not just people

Wednesday, December 13th, 2017

If you have a few favorite hashtags on Instagram that you keep your eye on, the only way to do so until now has been to search for them and see what's newly tagged with them (unless a third-party app had the option to follow them). Now Instagram is giving you the option to follow tags, just like you would people. It's one of the Instagram features that were leaked a few weeks ago.
