October Hashtags for Social Media – Over 190 Hashtags for 2022

Fall is in full swing when October begins. Pumpkin spice invades our food and drinks, the leaves start changing color, and Halloween decorations go up.

So why not start using some fun, fall-themed hashtags in your social media posts this October?

It’s a great way to get into the fall spirit, get more engagement on your posts, and connect with other users who are also using these hashtags.

To help you get started, we’ve compiled a list of over 190 October hashtags that you can use on your social media posts.

This list includes everything from general fall hashtags to specific hashtags for Halloween, so you’re sure to find the perfect ones for your needs.

So what are you waiting for? Get started using these October hashtags today!

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

In fact, October is a great time to start planning for the end of the year and set yourself up for a strong finish. And one of the greatest ways to do that is by using the best hashtags.

Hashtags can help you reach new audiences, connect with like-minded people, and get your content more exposure and seen by more people.

For example, you can use hashtags like #fallisintheair or #breastcancerawareness to promote breast cancer awareness month or fall-themed content.

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

To help get you started, I’ve compiled over 190 hashtags that you can use on Twitter, Instagram, Linkedin, TikTok, and Facebook.

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

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 in your posts for maximum results.
