For example if you want to view  an Oscar award event post than you can search it on Trending Topic option by entering search term as Oscar Awards. You can bifurcate it on the basis of most relevant info you are seeking, like you want to see celebrities photos then you can select people tab on Instagram and search for it. Providing this type of feature Instagram has made very convenient to the people to get the image they are seeking. In short you can now find out the information in very appropriate way.
