Hashtags are hot right now. They can be both extremely useful and extremely annoying, so be cautious.
- New to hashtags? Here’s what you need to know and why they’re an important part of social media.
- A new study shows using more than two hashtags in your Facebook updates significantly reduces engagement. Keep it simple.
- Remember, keep your hashtags online. Don’t include them in your speech. Ever. See this video of Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake to illustrate the point.
