What are hashtags?
Hashtags are conversations or trending topics on Twitter, Facebook and other social media networks that are arranged categorically. These were created to help people search and participate in their topics of interest. The hashtags or topics are preceded by the “#” symbol which will easily guide online users.
How can you start posting hashtags?
Simply post a tweet then include a hashtag that relates well with the topic.
For example: ‘Incredible story about #Klitschko Olympic medal.’ At
The hashtag should properly describe what the conversation will be about. It’s recommended to be very specific when making these to adequately guide others and bring in only relevant participants.
How often should you post hashtags?
Don’t use more than 2 - 3 hashtags one post. You can include hashtags in each of your daily posts although it is recommended to stick to particular topics so you can monitor and share good quality content every time. Also join in other hashtags if these are associated with your own created topics.
Remember - use too many hashtags can be distracting and even annoying to many users.
