Introducing Hashtags on Facebook

You read it correctly! First Twitter, then Google+ and now Facebook have introduced hashtags.

Hashtags are a cracking way to interact with people that have talked about or are currently talking about similar interests to yours.

Facebook have likened the hashtag feature to that already available on¬†Instagram, Twitter, Tumblr, or Pinterest (interesting that there’s no mention of Google+ though!).

So what sets Facebook hashtags from other networks? Not a whole lot it would appear; the three main uses which Facebook have listed are:

  • Search for a specific hashtag from your search bar. For example, #NBAFinals
  • Click on hashtags that originate on other services, such as Instagram.
  • Compose posts directly from the hashtag feed and search results.

Will the introduction of hashtags see you bringing the conversation from an exciting network to Facebook?
