Whilst I agree with these basic principles I think from the user side, the majority of people will use hashtags in much the same way as they do on Twitter, and less like on G+ or LinkedIn, say.
Hi Nicole, you’re right, most users will adopt the Twitter-esque hashtag use, which is sad (and a little irritating) – but hopefully, business users aren’t lured in! It’s all about best practices when it comes to Facebook strategy, don’t you agree?

I feel like I have multiple personality disorder when it comes to personal vs business social media. Have you seen this infographic? http://pinterest.com/pin/239042692694624999/
Wow interesting, especially that people want to take a vacation from social media! 31% for 18-24 year olds, that’s very revealing. This information fatigue is definitely going to increase in the coming years. Maybe I should do a post on it? What do you think Nicole?
I know, but I do know a few people who have deactivated due to social media fatigue! I’ve written a similar post about why we’re defriended for my co. – I’ll link you up when it goes live. I think you should definitely write it up. It’s a fascinating subject.
Hello, I am new to all of this. How do I know which words I can put hashtags in front of to be able to refer to another article in another location?
Hashtag words are keywords, so the same rules apply. Generally in marketing a hashtag should be short, simple and no more than 2-3 words. They aren’t used as links, but rather as a way to find similar content on the site you are using. Does this help?
