12 Hashtags We've Used And Should Stop Using ASAP

#GUILTY

Yeah, maybe they were cool when we first used them, but we're seriously suffering from ADHD: Annoying Duplication of Hashtags Disorder.

Here is a roundup of all the hashtag #gibberish we can’t believe we post and should really take a break from. Can you say #detox? 

1. #AfterSex

We haven’t actually used this, but to those who have, please. Just don’t. This should really just be changed to #Eww! Read more about the #AfterSex hashtag here.

2. #Selfie

Remember those hundreds of selfie photos that you posted with some random song line you liked that day? Yup, we’re all definitely guilty of this one!

3. #Blessed

Okay, it’s great that at one point or another we’ve all taken to Instagram to share how blessed we are, but really? Sometimes, we have a feeling you're just trying to make us #jealous. 

4. #SorryNotSorry

Depending on the context, using this hashtag may make you look like a megabitch. For reference, see #3. And no, that's not a hashtag. 

5. #IGersManila

The #IGersManila hashtag followed by that paragraph of ridiculously random hashtags that take up your entire screen. How do people even come up with these tags? For example: #IGersmanila  #insteresting #manila #club #bar #jackdaniels #pants #fun #funny #pasta #girls #instalife #life #automatic #sweet #mimimi #likeplease #followback #ialwaysfollowback #likeback #ialwayslikeback #action #mean #basic #aztec #music #tagstagram #tagsforlikes #memories #instafun

EDITORS' NOTE: IGersManila wrote to us and shed light on what this hashtag is really for—so the next time you use it, make sure it's not just to get likes! Find out about the origin of this hashtag here.

6. #TagsForLikes

Well this is embarrassing. When did we all start posting photos on Instagram just because of the likes we’ll get?

7. #[Insert name here] In [Insert vacation spot here]

Sure, this is fine when there’s a whole series of say, #MariaInPalawan or #JohnInBoracay photos, but just one? Hit backspace, now!

8. #Live

In case you missed The Chainsmokers’ new song, "Selfie," watch the video. You’ll understand why no one should ever make their caption "Living with my bitches #Live"… EVER. (Fast-forward to 1:12 to see what we're talking about.)

9. #YOLO

Okay, this was cool the first few weeks that Drake’s song "The Motto" was out, but after that, we really should have stopped. This is one hashtag best left in 2012.

10. #Swag

Why did we even use this hashtag? There are no words. 

11. #NoRagrets

12. #Hashtag

Seriously? You're hashtagging a hashtag? You do realize that's like saying ":)Smileyface," right?
