What is INSTAGRAM?
Get it today on your smartphone. It's an app available on both iPhone and Android devices. Instagram is a social network that consists of a photo stream of you and your friends. You can easily snap a photo or choose a photo from your library and apply fun and easy filters to it. You can add friends from your Facebook or twitter feeds, or simply by adding their Instagram username.
What is a HASHTAG?
A hashtag is used on social networking sites to identify a keyword. People place a # symbol (called a hashtag) before a keyword to categorize their post. On Instagram, if you click on a hashtag, it will take you a feed of all photos that have that hashtag.
How do I use a hashtag?
You can either use the hashtag in your original description of your photo, or you can place it in the comments. The hashtag can be placed in a comment right after you post the photo, or it can be placed onto on old photo of yours as well. Even if you place it on an old photo, it will appear as the most recent photo in a search of that hashtag.
Can I use a hashtag on more than one photo?
Yes! You can go through all of your old photos on Instagram and apply a hashtag. In the future, as you take a photo with your dog, just use the #lifeanddog hashtag right away and we'll be able to see it! Instagram keeps a permanent archive of photos that have been tagged in such a manner.
IMPORTANT! You must use the hashtag #lifeanddog to enter a photo, and NOT the @lifeanddog mention. If we miss the "@lifeanddog" mention, there is no way for us to go back and search during the judging periods before publishing. Hashtags are archived and searchable, while @ mentions are not.
