Using a hashtag in a social media post is as easy as adding the ‘#’ sign before a single word or phrase without spaces or punctuation. Though it’s easy to create a hashtag, it’s not quite as simple to do it in the correct or relevant way. A few simple reminders when using hashtags:
- Don’t string too many words together with a single hashtag. #CanWeSayThatThisIsImpossibleToGetCorrectNextTime
- Don’t #spam #with #too #many #hashtags. Don’t #overtag.
- Use only hashtags that are relevant to the topic.
- Always – and we mean ALWAYS – monitor your hashtags to save on an embarrassing mistake or in case your hashtag gets hijacked.
