Learn how to use hashtags with hashtag science and join the #hashtagscience conversation on Twitter. Hashtags are simple to use yet, it takes some thought to use them well. They can add value to communications or detract from the message when they are misplaced or excessive. Hashtags are used to participate in conversations around events, add exclamation, make a statement, categorize topics, and join in world discussions, games or contests.

They are a truly amazing phenomenon unique to social networking. The good news is that when hashtags are done right they can increase engagement, get message reach into untapped audiences, and add context. I worked with the team at Fandom Marketing to create a pretty awesome infographic we called “Hashtag Science” to teach you everything you need to know to execute hashtags flawlessly.

    I was on a call with a data person from Pinterest, and they said that their search is so well groomed, that they recommended not using hashtags within your pinterest posts.

      I noticed a search on Pinterest returns non specific matches. Not ideal in some situations. That’s good to know. If you have more insights maybe you can do a guest post about it! I haven’t been on the phone with a Pinterest rep, to date.
