Popular Hashtag Vocabulary

The following hashtags are some of the most popular in the Instagram community. Do you know what they mean?

#igers

IGERS means “Instagram users.” It’s often combined with the location of the users, such as #igersd or #igerscalifornia. Should we begin an #igersCISL hashtag?

#instagood

Adding the word “insta” to other words is common in the world of hashtags. The #instagood can be applied to practically anything that is positive, so it’s no wonder that it’s so popular!

#instamood

The same applies for #instamood: whether we are in a good mood, a bad mood, or any other mood in between, we can use this hashtag. What’s your #instamood today?

#instacool

If it’s not cool, it’s probably not on Instagram! Therefore, this hashtag is incredibly popular. What’s #instacool to you in San Diego?
