The Instagram Users and Hashtags Tool


An additional feature of SU Social is this tool that extracts suggested users and relevant hashtags. Utilizing this can be beneficial in selecting appropriate sources like the Follow, Like, Comment, and Repost tools and it can be also advantageous when choosing the right hashtags to incorporate into your posts.

How to access the Users And Hashtags Tool?

All you have to do to access the Users and Hashtags tool is to click on your Instagram account on the TOOLS view then click on the Users And Hashtags Tab on the list of tools we have for Instagram accounts.


If you want to add more sources for following the friends of a target account (followers/username; followings/username), you can utilize this function. It is advisable to use multiple sources and update them every 2-3 weeks for optimal outcomes. The ‘Suggested Users’ tool can aid in selecting the appropriate sources.

This tool extracts the users suggested by Instagram when you begin following an account. To better understand this process, you can follow an account manually using the Instagram app on your device or embedded browser.

Once you follow an account, Instagram will display Suggested Users. The following example illustrates how it appears when you attempt to follow manually through the embedded browser and Instagram app on your device.
