    Find and press the Instagram tile to open the application.
    It is a navy blue background with a camera in the middle. In this example, it is on the bottom of the home screen. If the Instagram tile is not pinned to the home screen, swipe left and find it in the apps menu. We want to add a hashtag to a photo because Instagram will group the photo into specific categories. If the hashtag is added, Instagram knows where to group it and allows a lot of people to see the photo. Anyone searching for that specific hashtag will see that photo.

    Write whatever hashtag was chosen and tap anywhere there is no text or option, to remove the keyboard.
    In this example, it is "#fish", so anyone that searches for "#fish" is going to find this picture. It will also be grouped into the "#fish" group which will allow more exposure. Multiple hashtags can be chosen. If there are multiple hashtags, it will further increase the exposure of the photos.
