"Hashtag" isn't a word that would've meant much five years ago, but nowadays it's determining what's being talked about the most on social media and it's seems quite a few people being are tagging the state of Florida. 

In a recent "study" by Pixable, which broke down the most hashtags associated with each state, the Sunshine State took 3rd place in the most Instagrammed state in the nation. 

This could be due to the fact that Florida hosts a massive tourist economy, which does encourage quite a few vacation pics. However, being the fourth most populated state also helps out. 

In fact, all but but one of the top five states on this list are our nation's most populated–the odd one out being Hawaii, which, like Florida, is a tourist-heavy state. 

Take a look at how the rest of the states placed on the list:
