Q. What are hashtags?
A. Hashtags are a way to categorize messages or topics within Twitter – and now Facebook and Instagram. Simply place the pound sign [#] directly in front of a keyword [no spaces] and when someone searches by that keyword they will see your message.
Social Media Tip: It is not cool to use more than two hashtags in a tweet so don’t do it. If you are unsure of what hashtag to use, try websites like Hashtagify or Hashtag.org to determine the best way to reach your audience.
