5/10/18 #Hashtags

There is so much information being posted at any one time on social media that wading through it is time-consuming and many interesting things can be overlooked.

Hashtags help solve that problem by making it easy to search for posts that are interesting to you. Hashtags are a quick and easy way to find like-minded people to follow and to attract more people to the posts you make.

You add hashtags to your tweets, pins, or posts by using the pound symbol (#) followed by a word or phrase that defines the topic, such as #picoftheday.
Don’t use any spaces in your hashtag; if you need to use more than one word, simply run them together. If it’s hard to read the meaning of the phrase without spaces, you can capitalize each word. For example, #ElectionNight.

Hashtags don’t have to be about a topic; they can also encapsulate a mood in your post. For example, if you post about winning a prize, you could use the hashtags #soexcited and #lovewinning! Hashtags can also be sarcastic, ironic, or funny.
