#Hashtags - tips and best practice advice
Hashtags have become an everyday feature of online life. With the introduction of these searchable links to Facebook over the summer it is key to be informed about what hashtags are, why they are used, when they are used and how they are used. Pixel Design’s tips will help you get started in this essential online marketing trend.
Hashtags can be used on all major social networks. They are a form of tagging that associates disparate pieces of content within an overall category. A hashtag, a word or phrase preceded by the # symbol (hash in Europe, pound key in the US), groups content together within the network where it is published. On many social networks these tagged words or phrases will be clickable, allowing users to access all content on that network associated with that word.
