#hashtags #are #about #to #invade #facebook


#news sources on the #internet are now confirming that #facebook is #working on bringing #hashtags to the #socialmedia site.

The #wallstreetjournal confirms this #trending news:

Facebook is working on incorporating the hashtag, one of Twitter’s most iconic markers, into its service by using the symbol as a way to group conversations, said people familiar with the matter. It is unclear how far along Facebook’s work on the hashtag is and the feature isn’t likely to be introduced imminently, these people said.

We all already know the #annoyinghabits of #instagram users posting #photos on #facebook with #amillionhashtags that totally #dontmakeanysense – but #neverfear dear #internet user, #facebook is going to make sure that those #hashtags now go to a #goodhome.

Even #gawker is getting #inontheaction by making a #topthree list of #thingsyouneedtoknow #abouthashtags.

A few important things to remember about hashtags:

The more hashtags you use, the more SEO you have. You want a lot of SEO. That’s very important. You can use SEO to buy Facebook “gifts” like a drawing of a gift to send to someone you have a crush on.

All nouns┬ámust┬ábe hashtagged or you might find yourself locked out of Facebook. This goes for status updates, inspirational Churchill quotes (“we will never #surrender” is good, “#we will #never #surrender” is great), whatever.

Creating a hashtag is very simple. All you do is hold down alt+bracket+F4+double-shift and then tap once on the * key. Alternately, you can send Mark Zuckerberg (or Zuckerman, both spellings are correct) a DM and he’ll send you one. You can copy-paste it into a Word doc and then just reopen it whenever you want to use it again. Don’t forget to re-save the Word doc with a new name every time you use it, though. So, for example, you might have 40 documents all labeled “Hashtag 1,” “Hashtag 2,” “My Lil’est Hashtag,” whatever.

So #facebook lovers, #areyouready for the complete #facebooktakeover by #hashtags or are you just going to go #chillontwitter while this all goes down?
