August Hashtags for Social Media – Over 155 Hashtags for 2022

While some might argue that social media hashtags are no longer as effective as they once were, we beg to differ – especially when it comes to certain platforms like Instagram.

Hashtags remain one of the easiest ways to connect with new audiences and grow your reach on social media, which is why we’ve put together a list of over 155 August hashtags for you to use on your next post.

Whether you’re looking for general summertime hashtags or more specific ones related to August holidays, events, and themes, we’ve got you covered. 

Simply copy and paste the hashtags you like into your next post and watch your engagement grow!

To help get you started, we’ve compiled over 155 hashtags that you can use on Twitter, Instagram, Linkedin, TikTok, and Facebook.

August is a month full of holidays and events, so there are plenty of opportunities to get creative with your social media calendar.

For example, you can use hashtags like #NationalGirlfriendsDay to give a shout-out to your BFF or #NationalBananaSplitDay to promote delicious treats.

Or, if you’re running a promotion or contest, you can use hashtags like #contest or #giveaway to get more engagement.

Hashtags are an outstanding way to increase the visibility and reach of your social media posts. 

You can use up to 30 hashtags in your Instagram posts, but research from Track Maven suggests that nine hashtags are the magic number for Instagram.

On Facebook and Twitter, I recommend you use 1 – 2 hashtags, and on LinkedIn use 3 – 5 hashtags.

Important Social Media Marketing Tips:

When compiling your list of hashtags for Instagram, be careful not to use only the most popular hashtags.

Hashtags with millions of posts are highly competitive and the chances of your content being seen are much smaller.

That’s why I’ve curated a list of popular hashtags that range from 15,000 to 1 million posts or more.

Use a variety of these hashtags to create posts for maximum results.

Daily Social Media Hashtags

When compiling your list of hashtags to use for a social media post, remember to incorporate daily hashtags.

Daily hashtags are very popular, and you use them on specific days of the week.
