Hashtags and their Use on Twitter, Google+ and Facebook

How to Use Hashtags on Google+, Facebook and Twitter:

Definition: The # sign / Tag, called a hashtag, is used to mark keywords or topics in a Tweet posting. It was created organically by Twitter users as a way to categorize messages.

Using hashtags to categorize Tweets by keyword:

-Recruiters can use the hashtag symbol # before a relevant keyword or phrase (no spaces) in their Tweet to categorize those Tweets and help them show more easily in Twitter Search to reach out to candidates.

-Click on a #hashtagged word in any message shows you all other Tweets marked with that keyword.(#JavaDeveloper)

-Hashtags can occur anywhere in the Tweet.

-Hashtagged words that become very popular are Trending Subjects.

Using hashtags correctly:

-If you Tweet with a hashtag on a public account, anyone who does a search for that hashtag# may find your Tweet

-Don’t #spam #with #hashtags. Don’t over-tag a single Tweet.
-Do not use more than 3 hashtags per Tweet.
-Use hashtags only on Tweets relevant to the topic.
