As I am browsing Twitter today like my everyday activity, I noticed someone mention that the hashtag EDM, #EDM, is banned on Instagram. Interested, I decided to check out what that I meant. I heard that #Curvy was banned before people started freaking out, but #EDM? Well, turns out when a term is “banned” it is unsearchable.
Welp. It is banned, I guess? Note, I do charge my phone. This is right after the new Advertising API Instagram launched earlier today. Well, I decided to take a look and see if other tags related to Instagram are banned. Funny enough, there are a lot of weird banned hashtags like #iPhone, #iPhoneography, #Sexy, and more. Here’s some site that put together a list. That being said, I noticed that other #EDM related hashtags still exist.
Notice how #EDMFreaks and #EDMGays are a thing. There are many more to the three pages that I listed. So maybe Instagram wants us to specify our tags? Maybe they just hate the music? We’ll wait and see what they have planned. In the mean time, TAG ALL YOUR PHOTOS WITH #EDM.
