Using hashtags on different social platforms – Instagram, Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter

Since each platform is a little different, we thought we’d delve into how hashtags work for each of them below:

Twitter

Did you know that Twitter invented the hashtag? Essentially in the infancy of the platform, the hashtag was invented to ‘categorize’ tweets before Twitter Search came into being, and now its used to keep those topics together and show ‘trends’ on popular topics.

Nowadays, tweets that use hashtags get an average of two times more engagement. But, keep it simple – if you use more than two hashtags, your engagement drops by an average of 17 percent.

Recommendation: Use two, well-researched hashtags

Facebook

Similar to Twitter, Facebook hashtags ‘tie together’ conversations from different users in one stream. However, unlike Twitter, most users are private and therefore the hashtags aren’t searchable.

This means that, as in this guidance from Facebook itself, hashtags on Facebook are best used by brands and companies, rather than individuals.

Recommendation: Don’t use hashtags on Facebook as an individual

LinkedIn

Like Instagram or Facebook, you can follow relevant hashtags on LinkedIn and add them to your posts or updates. Actually, LinkedIn is really handy in that when you create a post, it usually shows you recommend hashtags for that update!

Recommendation: Use three to four of the recommended hashtags

Pinterest

Pinterest, the visual search engine, really encourages its users to make use of hashtags, again as a way of sorting content. So, if you’re wanting your picture of couples travel to feature in someone’s Pinterest feed, its definitely worth using a hashtag like #couplestravel.

According to Pinterest itself, you can use up to 20 hashtags per pin.

Recommendation: Use up to 20 hashtags on your pin

Instagram

Now Instagram is a little different to the others, as hashtags are an integral part of increasing reach on both feed posts and stories.

For Instagram Feed Posts the latest guidance is that it’s suggested that you use around 10 hashtags, all perfectly curated i.e. a mix of popular, less popular and ‘niche’ hashtags, although you can use up to 30 hashtags on every post.

Remember: don’t just use the popular hashtags, since your post will compete with thousands, if not millions of other posts. As an example, if using the hashtag #couple, you’re going up against 21 million other posts!

For Instagram Stories, it’s worth trying a different hashtag every few frames to see which ones gives you the most views.

Lastly, if you’re doing an Instagram Carousel Post i.e. a multi-image post in your feed, it might be that hashtags don’t work properly on your post. This is a known bug in Instagram since 2020.

Recommendation: Use around 10 mixed hashtags on feed posts and a different hashtag on every 2nd to 3rd Stories frame

Where do I find the best couple hashtags?

Now we’ve told you how to use them, but what about how to find them? Again, let’s explore each platform in a bit more detail:

Twitter

Your best bet to find good couple hashtags for Twitter is using Twitter Search itself. Do a simple search in the search bar, like #couple, and you’ll see some more options pop up.

If you want to really find an opportunity to increase reach on your tweet, you could also consider Twitter’s Trending Topics, or even using something like Trendsmap to find hyper-local hashtag suggestions.

Facebook

As mentioned above, it’s honestly not worth trying to use hashtags as an individual, so we won’t even cover the search options here.

Instagram

Now Instagram is where you’ll find a bit more meat on the social media bone. First up, you can use Instagram’s on built-in Search functionality.

So, simply type in your hashtag like #couple and find yourself a lot more options such as #coupletime (333k) or #couplephoto (534k).

Alternatively, if you want to use a third party tool, there are both free and paid options on the market.

The best in the business is Hashtags for Likes, although its on a paid basis. For a free, although not as comprehensive tool, definitely try All Hashtag, a free of charge couple hashtags generator.

FAQ: Couple Hashtags

What is the maximum number of hashtags you can insert in a comment on an Instagram photo?

You can insert a maximum of 30 hashtags in your posts. However, it’s worth trying lower numbers and mixing it up – current guidance suggests 10 hashtags of varying volume.

How do I find all the photos using a specific Instagram couple hashtag?

Simple, just search the couple hashtag in Instagram’s search bar, and you’ll find all the photos sorted by Top and by Recent.

Other essential Instagram growth tools

Want to increase your engagement on Instagram? Other than great content, there are a handful of tools we love that either support your account growth, or just help to increase engagement on existing posts and stories.

Hashtags for Likes
Hashtags are one of the best tools to get views from accounts that don’t follow you. This service finds custom hashtag lists that are worth the investment, and helps personalise them to ensure you get maximum reach (and follows) on each post. You can find out which hashtags are bringing you followers. They have a 14 day moneyback guarantee, which you can try here.  

Tailwind
There are lots of scheduling tools and apps out there but we like Tailwind since you can also connect a Pinterest account, and it’s the best one on the market. Tailwind’s Instagram tool lets you schedule photos and videos, gives you 1 click hashtag suggestions and has a SmartSchedule to post when your audience is most engaged. You can get one month free (no credit card required!) here.

Kicksta
If you don’t want to go full automation, this tool is a great choice. With auto like functionalities, it grows your account slowly and can avoid blocks on your account. Kicksta is a cheaper (albeit not as well-rounded) alternative to Ingramer and competitors in that niche. Try it out here.
