#Hashtags: Why You Should Use Them

What is a hashtag (#)? A hashtag is a type of data tag used on social networks such as Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook and others. This symbol allow people or computers to more easily find posts with a specific theme or content. For example, if you wanted to search for posts specifically about retail, try a hash tag search: #retail. Next time you are searching for a specific term or event, give it a shot.
