Facebook has just announced the introduction of hashtags. Similar to other social platforms like Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram, you can now use hashtags to add context to a post or indicate that it’s part of a lager discussion. Clicking on a hashtag will take you to a news feed containing all posts of users and pages on that particular topic. This will help you to get an overview on a topic or find out what other people think about it. Hashtags won’t affect your privacy settings – you can still decide whether you want to share your posts with the public or your friends only. In the future, Facebook plans to introduce trending hashtags and deeper insights to help people discover more conversations.
