How To Hashtag #

What's a hashtag (#)? 

Hashtags, otherwise known as the # symbol, originally started with Twitter where users would hashtag words or phrases to categorize their messages. Hashtags are now used on almost all major social media sites as a way to make words or phrases searchable to the rest of the world. You can tag events, a company, a rock band, a charity, TV shows, or anything else you want.

An example of using a hastag in a Twitter post would be: I had front row seats to the #metallica concert last night and it was awesome!!! Then you could click on the #metallica and all of the posts on Twitter about Metallica would come up. 

Hashtag Rules

1. No spaces allowed. Multiple words hashtagged have to be together.

2. No special characters. Numbers and letters only.

3. Don't hashtag everything. Using one or two hashtags per social media post is sufficient.

4. Take a photo of you using gear you got from Avidmax and post your photo to Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter and hashtag us! #AvidMax Then your photo will be featured on our website!
