On Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, the pound sign (or hash) turns any word or group of words that directly follow it into a searchable link. This allows you to organise content and track discussion topics based on those keywords. So, if you wanted to post about social media for example, you would include #socialmedia  in your post to join the conversation. You can click on a hashtag to see all the posts that mention the subject in real time.

So what are you waiting for, go give #hashtags a try.

Until next time, may your social media news be great news!
