richtatumTag Failures: Are you experiencing this?
- richtatumI noticed today, for the first time, that a handful of tags that I commonly use are not returning any results. Have you experienced this?
It seemed like these tags initially worked when I first began using them just a few weeks ago. The specific tags in question are the ones I am showing above that have no results in the number column.
Are there other tags that Instagram refuses to recognize? Is there a list of them somewhere? This is interesting to me as it seems to be undocumented.

- cheng_gong22@richtatum I think you are right. I used to get at least 5 random likes because of my tags but not anymore. Wtf!
- richtatum@cheng_gong22 @Instagram should document this "feature"—especially since we are limited to a finite number of tags, whether they're useful or not.
- codyrobertson83@richtatum where do you go to see the screen you have posted?
- richtatum@awesomecodylee I used InstaGallery and clicked in the "tags" link below the photo. This will list all the tags on an image.
- clickychickThanks for your helpful info. I'm experiencing IG lag. I used to get more likes and comments. Maybe it's time to look at my tags.
- misterrswI'll report back later @richtatum when I post tonight...
- richtatum@misterrsw So, do you have some insights to share, sir?
- richtatum"Life in LoFi" (@MartyNearDFW) also noticed this. No answers from Instagram, though. (See: http://j.mp/igcensor )
- richtatum@Misterrsw, @martyneardfw, @cheng_gong22, @codyleeeeeeeeeeeeeee – Now it looks like hashtags with the word "porn" in them are failing. No more cloudporn. ಠ_ಠ
- cheng_gong22@richtatum i knew there was something fishy going on.
- codyrobertson83That's good @richtatum I've never been a fan of putting that word with any tag, personally.
- richtatum@codyleeeeeeeeeeeeeee I understand that, Cody. I think it was somehow appropriate, though, as it indicated a visually "sensational" approach to a subject matter. "Cloudpics" might be anything. But "cloudporn" promises to be a visual feast! Oh well. It's not like I'm paying for this service, no reason for me to complain. :)
- codyrobertson83In that case @richtatum , how about hashtag "cloudpixxx". Ha!
- richtatum@codyleeeeeeeeeeeeeee LOL
- richtatum@cheng_gong22 Agreed. I wish they'd improve things rather than add hindrances. @kevin @mikeyk
