hashtag-use

All of the social media platforms that we’ve talked about use the capabilities of hash tags, the pound symbol. Many people have NO idea what these are used for, so I wanted to be sure that we discussed. When you put a hash tag in front of a word, whether its in a post on Facebook, a tweet, or with an instragram photo, it makes that specific word a link. For example, if I were to write cupcake, and put a hash tag in front of it, the word CUPCAKE is now a link. Why is does this matter??Because if I want to get in contact with other people who are talking about all things CUPCAKE, I can click on that word, and see a list of other people talking about a like topic.

Mmmmm… now I want a cupcake.

Anyways.

This is super critical when you are engaging with others and broadening your social media circle.

Have you used #hashtags before? Were you using them correctly??
