Tagging on Instagram is the best way to gain followers and likes. People use the explore tool to search hashtags for things that interest them so your picture will come up if you use the right tags. Another great thing about tagging is you find people who share the same interest as you, for example, I am a huge fan of Robert Lowell (not many people know him) when I posted a pic of his genius book Life Studies, I found other people interested in the wordsmith’s literature, which was pretty cool.
