My Instagram hashtags are not working, and aren't appearing in hashtag searches?

This has been happening to me for three weeks or so. Whenever I post a picture with hashtags, and then tap on the hashtag my pictures do not appear, thus, go unnoticed. After always clicking on different options under the settings and help center - an option to report a broken feature finally appears. I've reported it about 5 times, and also sent bug reports. Deleted and reinstalled the app, checked my settings, always have the latest version. I have no idea what's going on. I've noticed other people have had this issue too. Does anyone have a resolution?

    Same thing is happening to me!!!! Only relief I have is knowing that apparently i'm not the only one having this issue! It was working fine until a week or so ago, now my hashtags simply don't show up in hastag results... I'm an upcoming musician & was keeping my instagram page available to everyone (non-private) since hashtags won't show to non-friends if your page is private, but if this crap carries on I might as well make my page private! First twitter starts acting stupid the other week w/ the meltdown of the function to change your default picture (was a stupid egg for several hours), now instagram is acting up. Can't win lol

    My hashtags are no longer appearing when I post a photo. This started today. Why is this happening?

    Same problem. No relevant answers. Written to Instagram daily to ask for help with no help and no reply. Any new ideas?
