Facebook has now introduced hashtags for their users which was announced by their newsroom earlier today.
You will now be able to click hashtags on Facebook as you can with other social media platforms like Instagram, Twitter, Tumblr and Pinterest.
The benefits we will see are as follows:
• Ability to search for a specific hashtag from our search bar.
• Click hashtags from other services like Instagram.
• Create posts directly from the hashtag feed and search results.
Facebook stated on their news release: “hashtags on Facebook allow you to add context to a post or indicate that it is part of a larger discussion. When you click on a hashtag in Facebook, you’ll see a feed of what other people and Pages are saying about that event or topic”.
