You may be using lots of hashtags to grow your Instagram followers, but at the same time these hashtags may be annoying or distracting for your existing followers. What's the solution then? The best way out is to hide your hashtags. You basically add enough line breaks to your comment that it forces Instagram to hide that comment because it's too long. It compresses that specific comment (where your hashtags will be) into what looks like this [...]
Here's how you do it:
- Use a text editor to save all your hashtags in one paragraph. I use Notes on iOS.
- Add 5 dots, with each dot on a separate line. Make sure each dot is on a separate line. See example below.
- Add all your hashtags below the last (5th) dot. The hashtags should sit on a new line below the last dot.
- Copy & paste all the dots along with the hashtags into a comment on your photo.
PLEASE NOTE: The 5 dots must all be on a separate line. You must copy and paste it into a COMMENT of your photo - NOT THE CAPTION.
The caption of the photo is the place where you write before you post the photo. It sits directly under the photo. DO NOT copy and paste your hashtags there. Paste it into a new comment AFTER you have posted the photo.
