Please stop hashtag abuse!!! #funny

Along with the growth of social media the use of hashtags or better yet the abuse of hashtags is at an all time high.

Here are some of the best use cases for hashtags:

  • The trending hashtag ie  #WorstRapLyrics, #momquotes, #NFLPlayoffs, #DontTwerkIf, etc
  • The obviously ridiculous but funny hashtag ie #ThingsIDoWhenIAmHomeAlone, #iCantBeTheOnlyPerson etc

Here are some of the worst use cases for hashtags:

  • The obnoxious use of common words as hashtags ie #you, #me, #the, #it etc
  • “Hashtag Hijacking” or using a hashtag that has absolutely nothing to do with the subject. Don’t do it!
  • The use of too many hashtags. We all know people that do it. Stop it! (I’m a recovering addict of this one myself)
  • The spoken hashtag. Come on people let’s leave the hashtags to the online world. Check out the video below to see what I mean.
