To Hashtag or Not to Hashtag?

Hi I’m Milton Goh (@miltongohblog),
I try to stick to a maximum of 5 hashtags per post. I read on an article that if you use too many you will appear spammy to IG’s new algorithm. If that happens, they may hide your content from everyone and almost no one will see your stuff in the explore or feed sections – aka Shadowban.
