It seems these days everyone is jumping on the #Hashtag bandwagon. The phenomenon was started by Twitter users. Essentially it started as a tag on a post to signify what the post was about. This created a way to tag your post so it would come up in search even though you didn’t explicitly mention the search term for which you wanted your post to be found. So to tag a post to show it is about social media, you would add the hashtag: #socialmedia
After it became widely used on Twitter, Google+ started using it. Now even Facebook has added the functionality. Facebook becomes Twitterfied People are now using hashtags for everything.
Hashtags can be a very useful, but overuse can just be ridiculous. This video shows just that. Enjoy!
