There is a new trend on Twitter that has regularly been hitting the United States and International trending list: “Today’s Kids Will Never Know Trending Hashtag” (#todayskidswillneverknow).

But the nostalgia is definitely fun.

Instagram has come a long way. From the simple snap, filter and share to become a feature-rich app and platform. Some of the changes were about beating other platforms vying for people’s attention.

The justification for features such as Boomerang, Rewind, Stop-motion is debatable. Despite these features, there are small changes that can have more significance.

We’re going to briefly look at:
- What they studied
- What they found
- Why I believe hashtags still have a use
- Some application points based off their research
