What is Hashtag?

Definition and meaning of Hashtag:

A hashtag is a word or phrase preceded by a hashmark (#). People use hashtags on social media to find and organize content, start conversations, or get discovered.

Here are a few examples:

If you want people to discover your posts about entrepreneurship, you can add #entrepreneur, #business #startup.

If you want to find posts related to fitness, you can search for #fitness, #gym, or #wellness.

If you have a business, you can create your own branded hashtag. So people can use it when they make posts with your products.

If you have a social media blog, you can use hashtags to organize your posts by category. For example, #gazizoff_life, #gazizoff_business, #gazizoff_tips.

Fun fact: Hashtags were first used on Twitter. Then, they became popular on other platforms like Instagram, Facebook, and TikTok.
