Ever wondered “What are the most popular first times around the world according to Instagram?”
For over a year now, I’ve been tracking multiple hashtags across most social networks. Hashtags such as #firsttime, #1sttime, #newexperience, and #firstexperience. It’s through the tracking of those hashtags that I made the decision to move to Las Vegas. Turns out, Las Vegas is the most associated city (from all cities around the world) with those hashtags. People either come to Las Vegas to have new experiences or find themselves having first times while they’re here. If you’ve been to Las Vegas before, it’s not hard to understand why.
The one thing that has surprised me the most since I’ve been tracking those hashtags is how few times they are actually used daily. I expected to see thousands of posts daily from the Billion of users on Instagram since people do love sharing with others when they do something new.
The lack of posts using those hashtags doesn’t necessarily mean people aren’t trying out new things, could just be they are, but aren’t using those particular hashtags. However, based on my observations from other social media sites, I wouldn’t hesitate to say that less people are out having new experiences than you’d think and that a SAD state of affairs.
I do have my mission to change that and when I do – I’ll see the change in the use of those hashtags – especially the use of the #365FirstsChallenge hashtag.
But for now, let’s have a look at the current Top Ten First Times on Instagram – not listed in any particular order.
