So do you put hashtags (#) after all your social media posts? Do you even know what a hashtag is or what it is for? If you answered "no" to any or all of these questions, you should definitely keep reading. When you see the # symbol before a word on social media, that's a hashtag. It allows your post to be categorized based on the hashtag itself.
How does the hashtag benefit your post? Well, if some one is on Twitter and wants to look for a beauty salon in Atlanta for example, they may search using this hashtags: #atlantasalon. Twitter will then compile results that match that hashtag. So using hashtags can definitely help you put your information, promotions and content in front on interested consumers and fans.
Lot's of marketeers thought hashtags would not stand the test of time and ignored their importance, but it looks like they may be here to stay. Facebook has now announced that they will be using hashtags for categorization and so does Google +. So love it or hate it, it looks like hashtags aren't going anywhere... #getusetoit .
