“Hashing It Out With Hashtags”
You’ve seen them. They’re everywhere on social media.
While historically it has masqueraded as a ‘pound symbol’, this simple, little # actually has a big influence on your communication and marketing online.
A hashtag precedes a word or a phrase and transforms it into a searchable link. The hashtag beautifully enables us to bring together related posts, plus it groups and organizes social media posts.
People use hashtags to find topics that are similar and to participate in discussions that are important to them. Click on the hashtag and it displays a magical world which brings together all the posts that are centered around that topic or subject.
Hashtags can be useful when you want to create and monitor visibility on social media platforms. This can be extremely beneficial when monitoring your company or your products. Use them to categorize your social posts, according to a topic or purpose.
