What is Hashtag

Hashtag in Social Media

Hashtag is a word or phrase without spaces preceded by a # sign. This is one type of the metadata tag.
Words or phrases written in posts on social media services such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or Google+ will be tagged when given the # sign.
By using hashtags, they will be grouped into other postings that use the same hashtag.
Hashtag will also be a keyword for search engines.

Because tweets that use hashtags will be twice as viral than hashtags.
But keep in mind, never use hashtag more than two pieces in each tweet. This is based on research that says that:
Using more than two hashtags will decrease their effectiveness by 17%.
If using 1 or 2 pieces will increase 21% more effectively.
Twitter users will share or retweet as much as 55% if only use 1 hashtag only.
25% of tweets will be shared without using hashtags.
If using hashtag, will be retweet as much as 40%.
