  • Its a way to create a hyperlink of sorts. If you hashtag something, others will be able to click on it and the site (namely Twitter and Instagram) will pull up all the other posts that use that hashtag.

  • I hate it when people put it on facebook. I actually just hate it in general

  • I was wondering the same thing. But What about when you see it on a TV show?

  • It's just a way to identify keywords so that if you wanted to see trends, all you have to do is to type those words, and you'll get every post that mentions that keyword. It's like putting a label on your social media posts to help categorize them.
