Understand and make use of hashtags

#ESOC2021 #captureESOC – make the most of your virtual experience this year!

 What is a hashtag, how to hashtag and why should you include them in your social media posts?

  • A hashtag or this symbol “#” has become an integral part of social media.
  • It is a label for content. It helps users who are interested in a topic, find direct information about it fast and easily.
  • Hashtags make it easier for you to discover posts around a specific topic.
  • They are not just for Twitter anymore, although they are most effective there.

How to use hashtags effectively:

  • They always start with # but they won’t work if you use spaces, punctuation or symbols.
  • Including hashtags in your posts means taking part in a conversation happening on that social media platform. And most importantly, it makes your posts visible in that conversation!
  • For example, if you use #ESOC2021 on your Twitter posts, everybody who follows that hashtag will see your recent post in their feed. You might gain some new followers this way as well – and thereby, connect with ESOC-interested peers worldwide!
