#DeathToHashTags
for example . . . ūüėą

Use it the same way you would use tags in a blog except in a social media post--to make certain things searchable by others. So if you're posting something about the Colorado River in Arizona then

#AZ
#ColoradoRiver

So people looking specifically for those topics can search by hashtag and topic.

Hi, Ginger Harper! Here's an excerpt from our "More Likes. More Followers. Savvy Ways To Mix And Mingle On Social Media": 

"When used correctly,¬†hashtags serve a powerful purpose and can increase your visibility, convey what you‚Äôre all about, and unite and rally your prospective audience(s) (i.e. ‚Äď popular¬†hashtags include: #realestatenews #realestate #realtorlife #realestateagent, etc. - you can also fill in the underlined portion with your info and tailor hashtags based on your area of expertise to help people discover you:¬†#HomesInYourLocation, #HomesForSale, #CityHomes, #LuxuryHomes)." Hashtags also specifically serve you best¬†when used in public posts on¬†Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.

Hope that helps!
- Tim

Pound sign, number sign, hashtag.  Used in social media for categorization of posts.  Allegedly people search on those tags.  Not so much on Facebook anymore, more for Instagram and other image sites.
