Here is what I learned about Facebook hastags today.
I learned that hashtags are a great way to create linkable posts, thereby helping people find posts about topics they are interested in. I know this because Facebook has this explanation within their site: Hashtags turn topics and phrases into clickable links in your posts on your personal timeline or Page. This helps people find posts about topics they’re interested in. To make a hashtag, write # (the number sign) along with a topic or phrase (written as one word) and add it to your post.
With my newfound knowledge, I assume that the following would be a good way for people to find O’Hare-Midway Limousine Service via Facebook…
At #O’Hare-MidwayLimousineService, we strive to provide #QualityTransportation and #AffordablePricing. Our #Vehicles and #Chauffeurs are some of the best in the #ChicagoLimousineMarket and our office staff are waiting to service you! When booking your next #Party, please don’t hesitate to give us a call. Our fleet of #Buses, #Limousines, #SUV’s, #Sedans, and #Vans, can accommodate almost any #TransportationNeed.
Okay, so maybe I should have finished reading the entire usage recommendation, but it seems fairly clear…hashtags are the way to go.
With all that being said, it is getting more difficult to read some posts these days. I will deliberately look past blogs and Facebook posts with hashtags in their titles, knowing that I am saving myself some degree of aggravation. I’m just trying to figure out why reading is now a word search, or when a tic-tac-toe game became punctuation.
Admittedly, I don’t jump on board with technology as quickly as I should. Then again, running a #LimousineService in #Chicago is fairly hectic, and can keep my away from the mundane task of #hastagging#.!?&%
