Hash.tag [hash-tag] noun 1. A keyword preceded by the hash symbol (#) and linked to a dynamic feed within the social network where it is posted.
Hashtags started on Twitter, then spread to Instagram, Google+, Pinterest, LinkedIn, and Vine - and now Facebook supports them. Tag your posts with the best of 'em by understanding the purpose of hashtags - and the social etiquette for using them.
BE CAREFUL TO AVOID THESE SOCIAL #FAUXPAS:#DoNotStringTooManyWordsTogather You can put multiple words together (be sure to omit spaces if you do), but keep it short and capitalize the first letter of each new word to make it easier on the eyes.
#Do #not #tag #each #and #every #word People will lose track, of what they are reading and what you're saying, and quickly move on to a less cluttered post and all goes wrong.
Avoid overusing descriptive synonym tags at the end of a post i.e #my2cents #idea #thought. Adding that follow it a link. If there's not a valid reason for further describing your post and aligning it with a topic, it seems messy and unnecessary.
