Facebook Introducing Hashtags

Social media site, Facebook is introducing hashtags - helping users gain a larger view of what others are talking about on Twitter, Instagram and other services.

In a blog post yesterday the social media site stated users will be able to click a hashtag to see a feed of discussions about a particular topic.

"We'll continue to roll out more features in the coming weeks and months, including trending hashtags and deeper insights, that help people discover more of the world's conversations," wrote Greg Lindley, product manager for hashtags, in the post.

The company stated that the hashtags are a first step toward making it easier for users to find out what others are discussing. The company is not giving exact details about other tools it might introduce. If Twitter's use of hashtags is any indication, Facebook will likely incorporate them into its advertising business.
