Instagram Hashtag – Why and how to use it

Published

Instagram Hashtag

You can now follow hashtags on Instagram – Drumroll. But the feature still remains a mystery to some Instagramers who find it weird to follow a “Word” that has not life. Well except in Instagram world, where words are brought to life by means of sharing. I do not follow hashtags because it is enabled, but I follow hashtags for reasons I will share shortly.

Hastags on Instagram

Basically while you write a word on most social media platform and add an adjoining “#” before the word, let’s say #Blackpanther. You have made some sort of link that connects every post made on that social media using #Blackpanther. So when one taps on #Blackpanther , a roll of all post bearing #Blackpanther is fed to you.

On Instagram, when you opt in to follow a hashtags only your followers see them, hence some privacy is given.  You can use hashtags to create a trend on Social media and make a post go viral. Hashtags can be used for some sort of online protest – but who takes that serious anyway. What annoys me about the Hashtags thing is the easiness of someone to spam it. Well, that’s not a case anymore because social media uses are getting wiser to spot something that is off the topic.

Why you should follow Hastags on Instagram

Hashtags are very helpful when you need to follow up a thing – just about anything. I use them to keep up with my entertainers on Instagram. Assuming you’re following a content creator on Instagram who releases special content on a particular day and with a special hashtags, but you can’t keep up. Maybe you’re not the trolling type. You can stay updated easily once you follow the hashtag which the content creator uses.
Worldwide events such as this upcoming Easter may spark a hashtag on Instagram, possibly –  #Easterday, which social media users can key in while creating posts (pictures and videos) relating to the occasion, to make an organized collection of posted picture and videos for the occasion.
Anybody following #Easterday will see posts with #Easterday showing up on feed. Following hashtags is also a great way of keeping an eye on your online shops when they have promos or discounts, just like “Black Friday” shopping promo.

MTN APN Configuration That Works – Mobile and Modem

Published

on

MTN APN is what is required to enable internet connection on your phone. APN is an acronym for Access Point Name. Access Point Name is typically the name of the gateway connecting your internet enabled device to the web through an internet service provider, such as MTN.

Most often we run into the problem of missing APN configuration and can’t surf the web with our phone or modem. If you have your APN configured before now and you still cannot browse, make the listed below are in order.

  • Data subscription balance
  • Data monitor app threshold
  • Other phones of same network can browse. Your inability to browse could be a general problem from the service provider at the moment.
  • Network signal reception

In Nigeria you can fall into the hands of the wrong people, who will charge you high amount of money in the name of configuring your phone for browsing.

To get the configuration pushed automatically to your phone by MTN.

Send as a text message “Settings” to 3888. Without quotes.

If the above method fails to get you APN configuration, you can fall back to configuring it yourself which always works.

For Mobile phones, navigate to “mobile network” in settings through more connections option, and you should see APN configuration option there.

Note: If your device works just fine, you are advised not to go further. But if for a reason you deleted the pre-installed APN configuration and you want to get it back. You’re welcome. The configurations work for 2G, 3G and 4G network type.

Access Point Name is unique to every service provider and can come pre-configured in SIM cards. When you slot in a new SIM card into a phone, it goes through it’s initiation to the service provider’s system. The service provider can then push necessary configurations to the device. Devices with MTN SIM card making an internet connection must be configured with an APN to present to MTN.

MTN will then examine this APN to determine what type of connection should be created, for example: which IP addresses should be assigned to the wireless device, which security methods should be used, etc. All of which is done in a second by a programmed system.

Hard to say:

The free data bonus is valid till Sunday 23.59pm every week. You don’t get the reward twice a week, so no need beating the target twice.
