I am finally getting on the bandwagon with hashtags, after seeing facebook and google plus begin to use them. What are they? They are usually a keyword or phrase preceded by the symbol # and when you click on them you can see other related content from your social media network. #hashtags…you can use them on twitter, facebook, and google plus to get more followers, categorize a subject, start a discussion, look for more information…etc.
Hope that helps…and I didn’t know or “get it” with hashtags either but they just came up as something that might be useful for marketing online, so go ahead and start using them!
