Last Wednesday June 12, Facebook #hashtags were officially announced by Facebook.
But before you run off and experiment with the new feature, know that it is still in roll out and not everyone has the Facebook hashtags feature.
Users can now use hashtags in their status updates and in their comments. When you use a hashtag it connects you with people who are also talking about the same subject used in your hashtag. For example, I’m a big fieldhockey fan and when I type a status update and wants to see who else is talking about fieldhockey, I can simply write an update to include #fieldhockey and then click on that link to view who else is talking about fieldhockey.
