The 25 most popular hashtags for Instagram users-

If you are going to be using social media, Instagram specifically you need to embrace hashtag use to increase your exposure and connections. 

The 25 most popular hashtags

According to Post Planner, they are:
1. #love
More than 696 million Instagram posts have the #love hashtag.
2. #instagood
This hashtag has appeared on about 314 million posts and counting.
3. #me
More than 297 million posts have the #me hashtag.
4. #tbt
This is a popular hashtag for those learning how to market on Instagram or for “Throw Back Thursday” where you post a picture of the past on -- you guessed it -- Thursday.
5. #cute
This hashtag has appeared on more than 258 million posts: Anything with puppies and babies wins!
6. #follow
The #follow hashtag has appeared on more than 258 million posts.
7. #followme
Another hashtag all about follower growth. As in, I want you to follow me and I’m obvious about it.
8. #photooftheday
Reserved for your best pictures -- only one per day that you call the best, or any picture you put this hashtag on.
9. #happy
Not related to the Pharrell Williams song, “Happy,” although that one is smile-worthy.
10. #tagforlikes
This popular hashtag asks people to tag them in posts so they can get more likes. I think this is crazy; it’s kind of like a business standing on the corner and begging folks to “Like me! Like me!” Not very good for premium brand building.
11. #beautiful
Instagram users have typed this hashtag more than 250 million times.
12. #girl
Again, I’m not sure you can get more generic, but good to know my gender is often featured in Instagram.  
13. #like
Not sure about any ROI here, but again, it’s very clear what people are going for with this hashtag.
14. #selfie
There’s nothing like a good selfie angle to make one’s photo unrealistically gorgeous, which is why I love a good selfie.
15. #picoftheday
Similar to #8 (#photooftheday), these are for some of your best pictures, or the ones you apply this hashtag to.
16. #summer
No matter what time of year, this seasonal hashtag rules.
17. #fun
Where photos are marked with things that are not awful.
18. #smile
This sunshiney-day hashtag has been used millions of times.
19. #friends
This hashtag is used for gatherings of people you like to associate with.
20. #like4like
This “I’ll scratch your back if you scratch mine” hashtag does work to get more followers -- quality followers, I’m not sure about, but followers nonetheless.
21. #instadaily
This hashtag says, “Hey, it’s today, and I’m on Instagram!” A bit obvious, yes, but many people use it.
22. #fashion
This hashtag is where you start to see niches, with fashion being one of the most popular.
23. #igers
Sounds bizarre, but this hashtag -- short for “Instagram Users” -- has been used hundreds of millions of times.
24. #instalike
Another “Please like this post” hashtag.
25. #food

Your Business Online Reputation Matters!

Online Reputation Repair….
Many companies, from small businesses to large corporations, underestimate the harmful effect that poor online reputation has on their business and, in turn, sales. Online reputation management must be taken very seriously, as the damage incurred from a negative web reputation is very difficult to overcome. For example, when a potential customer searches a company’s name and sees the negative results on Google, they are much more likely to take their business elsewhere, and you have lost a valuable client. If this isn’t fixed, this same scenario will happen over and over again. Once you understand why online reputation management is essential for your company’s success, what is the next step if your company currently has a bad web reputation, has been described unfairly in the press, or on one of the consumer review sites such as PissedConsumer.com?

Will you be able to fix it? Do you need to hire a pro? The answer is yes, yes and yes.
