Hash-tagging is used throughout social media applications to help communicate and link messages with specific themes or content to target audiences.
Here’s a few tips to help you #hashtag effectively!
1: DON’T OVERUSE – use a maximum of two hashtags in your Tweets or Facebook posts. If you use too many your followers will think you are spamming them.
2: KEEP THEM SHORT — tweets are restricted to 140 characters you don’t want a hashtag taking up 50% of the letters in your tweet, there is however no limit to facebook post length but keep them short to avoid annoying your fans/friends.
3: DEFINE YOUR TAG – Give your tag a meaning you can also search for the meaning of existing tags.
4: NO SPACES OR PUNCTUTION – make sure there are no spaces in the words preceding the hashtag or punctuation, as it will break the link.
