Absolutely use hashtags on Twitter and Instagram. It helps others find you by searching the hashtags for relevant posts and leads to more followers or hopefully, potential leads!

Interesting answers; need to explore. Are there any webinars or tutorials on how to use hashtags effectively?
I have heard of various ways to use it, and we think it is a not at good use of one's time. Of course, someone can prove us wrong, but our criteria is have you made $$$ through this method. Time is money, and one could do much better using other means of communication. A

Absolutely, absolutely, and one more time absolutely. Its the ONLY way for people to find your content if they are not already following you. Very powerful marketing method, or no reason to use your precious time.
The only thing with hash tags is that if the person searching for a home does not know what hash tag to search for, they are useless.
I have not used instagram.
Not a big fan of social media, so I have a lot of work to do!
Hashtags on Instagram can be used in the same way as hashtags on other social media sites and can be effectively or ineffectively used in the same manner.
Yes, I use it in all my posts. Also use a location, live stories and promotions to get the most exposure to the area you are interested in.
Donald I am doing some research on hashtags and pulled up this thread. I'll be publishing a detailed "how to" in the next 24-48 hours on my blog. I'll notate it in active rain. http://inboundrem.com or follow me here.
Hashtag you are it
I use it but mostly on Twitter.
I don't use instagram.
I have no idea, but will be reading the other answers hear to learn.
I do not use Instagram, but I will probaby check it out in the future. It has been interesting reading all of the comments.
I confess to not using them because I don't know how to do it effectively.
I #Hashtag just about #allmyposts about #realestate and how I'm their #1 choice for a #ThousandOaksRealtor on all my social networks, even #ActiveRain (I started that last week here though).
Hope that #answers your #question
Haven't used Instagram much.
# tags yes....instagram no
Not on Instagram, but do use them on Twitter and Google+.
Nope- but it is something I need to start thinking about!
I'm not on Instagram currently. I use hashtags for Google+, Twitter and LinkedIn for AR post links.
I don't hashtag or instagram.
You must use hashtags the same as keywords in a blog. Find the ones people are looking for. You could also check trending hashtags and incorporate them in your post to attract attention.
I use to always use hashtags on google+... have not recently.....hmmm
Good morning Donald. No. I would not have any idea how it can be used in real estate.
