How to use HASHTAGS

So, #hashtags….

(c) Wikipedia.hashtag is a word or a phrase prefixed with the symbol #.It is a form of metadata tag. Short messages on microblogging and social networking services such as Twitter, Tout,  identi.ca, Tumblr,  Instagram,  Flickr,  Google+ or Facebook may be tagged by putting “#” before important words, as in:

#How to #use #Hashtags

So as simple as putting a number sign/sharp/hash/whateveryoucallthis(“#”) in the beginning of the word.

So why do I need to blog about a how to if it is simple as that?

Because people on the internet has been doing hash-tags the wrong way. Like for an instance this:

used wrong hashtags

Don’t put special characters when making a long hashtag like this #DontMakeMePissedOffByUsingHashtagsWrong

Well, not that I have problems with one doing it but it makes me sick seeing half of my internet friends do it.

This is not a hard thing nor this is a national security concern but do this for me and for those who are doing it right. It pisses us. #Seriously.
