Does Facebook Now Have Hashtags Like Twitter?- The Answer Is Yes
According to Tech Crunch, here’s how Facebook explains the reasoning behind the addition:
Every day, hundreds of millions of people use Facebook to share their thoughts on big moments happening all around them. Whether it’s talking about a favorite television show, cheering on a hometown sports team or engaging with friends during a breaking news event—people on Facebook connect with their friends about what’s taking place all over the world. To bring these conversations more to the forefront, we will be rolling out a series of features that surface some of the interesting discussions people are having about public events, people, and topics. As a first step, we are beginning to roll out hashtags on Facebook.”
Facebook says it’s only “beginning to roll out” the feature, so you might not see it right away. Don’t start using them and look like a fool when they don’t work.
