helping you figure out the web and social media one post at a time!
True, but there is so much more to hashtags! For example, if you're having a conversation with another person about #programming, you mark each tweet with that hashtag so that other people interested in #programming can jump in. You can also use hashtags to read your conversation over later on.I've seen them used for virtual parties (#babyshower), for tweets during television events (#obama), and to discuss big conventions (#sxsw).Hashtags are a great way to keep track of your conversations, especially if you talk to a lot of people on Twitter.
Good point Elizabeth. I also search hashtags when I am conducting marketing research and want to find all of the posts with that hashtag through Twitag. This is a great way for businesses or individuals to follow trends that may be relevant to them.
Thanks for the explanation on hashtags. I found them useful for People to find me also, #mortgage, #CRE etc. It is amazing on many People we can be in contact with.
great info, they are really used for tracking trends and conversations today
My how Twitter has grown since this article premiered. A day does not go by without seeing the Twitter Logo and hearing it mentioned on TV. The symbols can be tricky to get correct.
