A couple days ago were reading a passage in English about how social media presence is helping people such as small businesses and organizations make change. We thought back to this idea and were inspired to create SecureTheTag, especially after seeing the effect that the COVID-19 Pandemic has left on small businesses. Many small businesses have struggle to stay open during these difficult times due to less people being out. By using our tool, we hope small business owners can gain the social media traction they need to keep their doors open. Furthermore we hope to make the lives of marketers, business people, and influencers on social media easier, so they don't have to search for hashtags and decide which ones are the best themselves, instead they can rely and use the help of our app to decide.
What it does
Our hack, SecureTheTag, provides the most relevant and popular hashtags for Instagram posts, bringing in larger audiences that are more likely to interact with the user’s content. All the user has to do is upload the picture that they want to post on Instagram onto our website. Then, the image is put through an image classifier that returns a list relevant trending hashtags (sorted from most relevant to least relevant) to use when posting the picture.

What's next for SecureTheTag
In the future, we would like to allow users to log in to the site using their Instagram credentials and even post directly to their page from our website. Unfortunately, Instagram has about a 2-week verification time frame so we were unable to implement it. We also want to eventually incorporate a database that will store recently generated hashtags so users can choose from an even larger selection, and will store data on the amount of hashtags that have been generated through our website.
