  • I'm with you SB. I don't get it either. How will it effect Facebook?

  • The hashtag thing is obnoxious in most circumstances. It makes sense when it's tied to something specific, like a product or tv show, but all the #omgimtired #fml #yolo crap is bad enough on Twitter

  • How will it effect Facebook?

    It will make facebook content searchable by hashtags in them. IE if a bunch of people have status updates with #bieberfever at the end, you can search for #bieberfever and see any that are allowed to you by privacy settings. Any kid with their status set to public will be listed, but people who only have posts visible to friends or certain groups will only be on the list for those people.

    Of course, that doesn't stop anyone from taking a screencap of them and posting them, regardless of what privacy settings let them see it.
