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

How you use hashtags really depends on the platform of choice. With that in mind, let’s look at how to best use them, plus our recommendation, for the major social networks:

Twitter

Did you know that Twitter invented the hashtag? Back when the platform was new, users created hashtags as a well to organize it, before Search was invented.

Today, hashtags still have a key purpose in showing your tweet to more users, particularly on trending topics and the research shows that tweets with hashtags get double the engagement.

Recommendation: Use two, well-researched hashtags

Facebook

Now Facebook uses hashtags in a similar way to Twitter BUT there is a big caveat here: most Facebook profiles are private or limited, so the hashtags aren’t searchable. This generally means that hashtags on Facebook are only useful for companies and brands.

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.

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

LinkedIn

This business social network is the easiest of them all – LinkedIn actually suggests hashtags for you, when you write a post or update! At time of writing you can’t use hashtags in actual articles, only in posts, but its still a nifty feature!

Recommendation: Use three to four of the recommended hashtags

Instagram

Where do we start with Instagram? Well hashtags are crucial if you want to extend your post or stories beyond your own community of followers and friends.

When it comes to Feed Posts, you can use up to 30 hashtags but the most recent stats show that around 10 is the ‘magic number’ for getting hashtag impressions. For these hashtags, make sure you ‘mix it up’ by using hashtags with different volumes. As an example, if you just used the #sunset, you’d be competing with 242 million other posts. But if you used #sunsetgram (262k), there’s a much better chance someone will see your post under that hashtag.

For Stories, it’s suggested to try out different hashtags on every 2-3 frames, and then to check your Viewers and see which hashtag got you the most views.

Recommendation: Use around 10 mixed hashtags on IG Feed Posts and a different hashtag on every 2nd to 3rd IG Stories frame.

Pinterest

Last, but definitely not least, is Pinterest. Here you definitely should use hashtags – they actually recommend it! Let’s say that you have a fantastic sunset pic, try to use up to 20 hashtags (that’s their max recommended number) to try and get your sunset photo into someone’s Pinterest home feed.

Recommendation: Use up to 20 hashtags on your pin

Where do I find the best sunset hashtags?

So we gave you the lowdown on how to use them, but where on earth do you find them? Let’s try that again, looking at each platform for different search options:

Twitter

Simple – it’s Twitter Search. Just use the Twitter Search bar, enter your hashtag (in this case #sunset) and a few more related options should auto-populate. If you want something a little unrelated, you could also try out something like Trendsmap to see what’s trending in your country or area, for some more popular hashtags.

Facebook

Like we said above, hashtags on Facebook are nearly exclusively meant for companies and brands.

Instagram

Instagram is probably the platform where you want to spend the most time searching for that perfect hashtag mix. And your first port of call is the platform’s own search.

Just type in the first hashtag – like #sunset – and you’ll find yourself given a number of other ideas, like #sunsetshots (238k) or #sunsetcolors (387k).

You can also use some fantastic third-party tools. The best one is the paid version of Hashtags for Likes although you can try the free sunset hashtags generator, All Hashtag

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.
