Hashtags popularity is definitely taking over the internet world and has become an integral part of the whole social media experience. Since twitter introduced it back in the 2008, the former ‘pound sign’ was never the same again.
Now people hashtag as many as they can in any gadgets they have. Facebook also has already jumped in the bandwagon and supports hashtags. And even on other social networking sites that doesn’t support hashtags, people are still using it too. However, no matter how great we want our hashtags experience would be, some hastags are misused and can be so annoying for your friends, fans and followers. Most people who are guilty of breaking the hashtags etiquette are marketers but sometimes, even ordinary people do break the rules. Mind your manners! Here are some hastags etiquette you should bear in mind.
You can put multiple words together but don’t put too much (it’s just not an unpleasant sight) and be sure to omit spaces if you do and capitalize the first letter of each new word to make it easier on the eyes.
#do #not #tag #every #word #you #think #of
I know some pictures and statuses are hard to describe in one hashtag so sometimes you have plenty of them. But please not too many hashtags in one post please. This is common in Facebook where there is no character limit.
dont jump on a trend without actually relating your post to the topic
Marketers are the ones guilty of this. Just because you want to spread your brand awareness doesn’t mean you should include a tag surrounding the latest celebrity gossip.
Avoid overusing descriptive synonym tags at the end of a post
#my2cents #idea #thought are the same in meaning. So you dont need to add all of those hashtags. It seems messy and unnecessary.
