What is a # Hashtag?
A hashtag is a keyword or phrase preceded by the hash symbol that people include in their social media posts. Basically, it makes the content of your post available to all people with related interests, even if they’re not your followers or fans.
For example: let’s say you’re a photographer and you’re a Nikon fan, and you’re playing with the idea of buying a Nikon D750 camera. A simple “#nikond750” search on any social network will open a dedicated news feed with all Nikon D750 camera latest updates, feedback and photos taken with that camera. The results you see are the aggregated posts of any users who used #nikond750 in their posts.
How Can the Use Of #Hashtags Help to Promote Your Work?
If your social media profile is public, using hashtags make your posts visible to basically anyone who shares your interest. This is how we’ll see your images once you post them using our tags (#shopvida, #vidavoices,#Vida, #makeartmakechange), just to name a few. With that said, we can share your work on our social media pages to the entire Vida community for more exposure. No longer are posts limited to just your followers, fans or customers.
