Anyone who knows me knows how much I love using #hashtags (In fact I was once named the #HashtagQueen by Kelly Potts – see the proof here)! But in 2015, Patrick Coffee via AdWeek actually wrote a blog post titled “No One Uses #Hashtags Anymore” in which I responded with my blog post, “Everyone STILL Uses #Hashtags.”
I am happy to announce that today is the 10th anniversary of the #hashtag which means that people still use #hashtags (a lot)! In fact BBC News wrote an article today that said the #hashtag symbol “is used 125 million times on the platform each day.” The same BBC News article listed the 10 most popular hashtags from the last 10 years which include: #barcamp, #BlackLivesMatter, #CupforBen, #EdBallsDay, #FollowFriday, #HeForShe, #IceBucketChallenge, #JoinIn, #PutYourBatsOut and #TheDress
While those seem like pretty popular #hashtags that have been used these are a few of my favorites (some are still the same from my blog post in 2014):
I would love to know some of your favorite hashtags and WHY they are your favorite!
