What is a hashtag, How to “hashtag” and why include them in your social media posts?

  • A hashtag or this symbol “#” as it is more commonly known has become an integral part of social media.
  • A hashtag is a label for content. It helps others who are interested in a certain topic, quickly find content on that same topic.
  • Hashtags make it easier for you to discover posts around specific topics.
  • They’re not just for Twitter anymore, either. Hashtags are effective on other social media platforms too. (Find more details on how to use hashtags for each platform below.)

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 #SIOP2021 on your Instagram 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 SIOP-interested peers worldwide!
