Help needed, mes amis! I'm not very 'au fait' with all the peculiarities of Instagram so I may well be doing something wrong but here's my query - I follow #thomasjane but not all the posts with that tag show up on my, erm, list (or whatever the geek term is for that), whereas all the '@somebodyorother' ones do.  Does anyone else have this or have I missed something somewhere along the line?

The hashtag when you click on it should be split into two menu options at the top. One says "Top posts" recent and the other says "Most recent" so they should all be under "Most recent" and the ones with the most likes should be in "Top posts" but it doesn't always seem to be that way but im sure that there is some clever coding that sits behind it all that only shows certain things but looking at the count of total # posts under #ThomasJane the ones under "Most recent" do all seem to be there. In my case anyways.

Oye oye, the so called "ninja" will now mingle into the discussion... 😉

What you're describing Geoff is true if you actively click on the fucking hashtag. Gail's question is related to the automatic flow of posts appearing on the main "thread".

Gail: I have made the same observation and didn't even try to solve it.

Conclusion: I'm actively clicking on the fucking hashtag every day to see what's new (most recent) and if I missed something.

I'm sure this answer doesn't help you 😖

Well I bow down to thee as normal. Even with all the swearing. #fuckinhashtags

Thank you both for your time and yes, it was the thing that Ariane (aka social media ninja) described - glad it’s not just me being an old person!

The more you engage with the posts which use that hashtag, the more will show up in your feed. Spend a couple of days just clicking the shit out of all the hearts on the posts, and you'll soon start to see the #Thomas[fuckinghashtag]Jane posts showing up automatically. 😋

Insta's algorithm is basically the same as the Book of Faces; it won't show you stuff it doesn't think you're interested in (unless it's paid to do so, of course... I get spammed sodding cat stuff ads all the time - I don't even have a cat!), so you have to teach it what you want to see. Make sense? Now, go forth and like the shit out of anything and everything you can find with that hashtag!

Hard to imagine, I know! But yep, essentially, that's the problem. What a problem to have, eh? Ha ha!

@Geoff - this just cropped up on my Insta... I am assuming that Thomas has not got a new account, with only two photos.

There's a word for them - it begins with arse, and ends in hole

In all seriousness though, what do they hope to gain? Popularity? Is it really that important to them to be liked? Part of me thinks that it's all quite tragic, really. 😢

So has anyone else been pestered by this new arrival on Insta:

I had a message from him (or maybe her?) today, saying it was an honour to meet me and asking if I just had a crush or if I was a fan?  Well I already knew it was fake, but if I didn’t that would have given it away since Thomas is already vaguely aware of my presence here and on IG. 🤣🤣

I have noticed though that the posts that were there before have been removed.  Are you all over it Geoff?

Yeah I am, Got him kicked off Twitter but he (I think) knows who I am so has blocked me on Insta so working the problem for sure.
