This week we take a look at the spice of social media – the Hashtag game! Social media thrives on hashtags.

It doesn’t matter if you’re on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest, Tumblr, Google Plus +, Flickr or Vine, it’s a must to use hashtags.

In case you’ve been living under a rock, here is a quick summary of what a hashtag is and what its purpose is.

Hashtags basically can be seen as a label for content. This content is then categorised and those who are talking about the same issues find it easier to track the topic.

It’s a pretty smart idea! You would honestly never think that a symbol would play such a big role on a post.

 

Background

Chris Messina could be called a genius in some sense to have come up with something that has revolutionised the face of social media.

The first hashtag was born on August 23, 2007 on Twitter and it was: “how do you feel about using # (pound) for groups. As in #barcamp [msg]?”

Seven years later and hashtags have helped build awareness around the world through #BringBackOurGirls #IceBucketChallenge #YesAllWomen #YouOKSis #TweetLikeANeurotypical #AmINext #UmbrellaRevolution #IfTheyGunnedMeDown #WhyIStayed #DontShoot and these were all global changers.

With the good hashtags created there has also bad hashtags. In the name of building awareness people have misused hashtags for financial purpose.

Also for teenagers, people have used hashtags for drug and alcohol consumption globally.

However on the bright side hashtags have also become a fun tag-a-long with any post on social media. Many times people include them in posts which then becomes a trend.

This week we will look at the trendy hashtags you can use on a daily basis.

A little tip before we get into the details. When you upload a post with hashtag its import to put it together!

It’s never a: #i #am #going #to #the #beach it should be #iamgoingtothebeach. Keep that in mind!
