    What is a hashtag? How to use hashtags? Why include them in your social media posts?

  • A hashtag (#) has become an integral part of social media.
  • A hashtag is a label for content. It helps others who are interested in a certain topic quickly find content on that same topic.
  • They’re not just for Twitter. Hashtags are effective on other social media platforms too. (Find more details on how to use hashtags for each platform below.)
  • How to use hashtags effectively:

  • They always start with “#” but they won’t work if you use spaces, punctuation or symbols.
  • Including hashtags in your posts means taking part in a conversation happening on that social media platform. And most importantly, it makes your posts visible in that conversation. For example, if you use #IGCS2021 in your Tweets, everybody who searches that hashtag will see your recent post.
