In what order do photos and videos appear on Instagram hashtag pages?

On some some hashtag pages, you may see:

  • A Top section. Top posts appear on trending hashtags to show you some of the popular posts tagged with that hashtag.
  • A Recent section. Recent posts tagged with that hashtag appear in the order that they were posted.

Keep in mind that if you add a hashtag to a photo after it was posted, the photo will still appear on the hashtag page according to the time it was originally posted, not the time the hashtag was added.
