    We're going to type in a hashtag that we're interested in. In this example, we're going to type in "clouds". We need to tap on the white button with a black arrow inside of it. This is the search button. We can search hashtags to find photos that are related to a specific subject. People use hashtags so that all of the photos are grouped together and therefore we can view them as one big group instead of looking at individual profiles.

    We have lots of hashtags related to clouds. "#clouds", "#cloudscape", "#clouds_of_our_world", "#cloudsky" and so on. Choose the top one to see the most results. This will show the photos with that hashtag.
