Do you have a hashtag strategy, or are you just kinda wingin’ it?
A hashtag is a word or phrase preceded by a hash sign (#). It is used on social media to identify content on a specific topic and enables cross-referencing of content with the same subject or theme. Users can search for a hashtag and find all posts related to that certain hashtag. For example, if a user searches #realestate, they will be able to find all posts with #realestate in the caption.
