How to Correctly #Hashtag

Best Practices for Using #HashtagsRelated image

In practice, hashtags are used to categorize social media content. By including the #KEYWORD in a post, it then becomes a visible clickable link inside that post and when clicked it gets categorized and appears with other posts using that same hashtag.

When used properly, hashtags make it easier for users to find related content. They can help increase the visibility of your own brand and help boost your own posts and topics.

However, when overused, they can negatively impact your credibility on social media and can have the inverse effect of decreasing your social activity. As well as giving others the credit that you or your company deserves.
