Hashtags have been used on Twitter for years as a handy way to access threads of conversation. Facebook have announced that they have added #hashtags to their offering and are starting with a sensible approach of just making #hashtags clickable. They have also said that they will be adding more features in due course such as trending hashtags.
If you use a #hashtag or set of #hashtags on twitter you can now apply this to your marketing on Facebook too, simply add your #hashtags to your status updates.
Facebook are not currently permitting sponsored #hashtags or the ability to target people who use specific #hashtags but we suspect this is likely to change so watch this space!
Take a look at our Facebook page to see how we are using #hashtags
