What are hashtags? They are specifics keywords that people do research and find more information about the subject. We put the sign # before the words we want to be clickable, like this example: #facebookquestions . By doing this, people will be able to click on it and will appear other posts with the same subject in Facebook.
It is recommended to insert a maximum of 2 words with hashtag per post and you either put them in the text or just right after. Some people think this concept is useless while other, like me loves it because it increase your social media visibility.
Here is an example where recently in one of the top online social media magazine, we could read an article from Mari Smith, one of the world’s leading social media strategists . She was writing about Facebook hasthtags. As an example she took the clickable word #facebookquestions and she is showing us the results.
Here is the image:

If you look at the posts’ results with this word, she appears in first. Now, look closely who appears in second? Interesting! On top of increasing my visibility in Facebook, by the searches, in this case, it also brought me an amazing visibility in the Social media Examiner, isn’t this great?
