      So, it was announced the other day that Facebook would be rolling out hash tags, something that has been popular with social networking website Twitter since 2006.

      What are your thoughts on hash tags on Facebook now and will you use them?

      I personally feel like Facebook is just now copying something from another social networking website just to try and be the better one. I personally use both Facebook and Twitter and to be Twitter will always be the place for hast tags.

      I have noticed that many are already overloading their status updates with hast tags on Facebook which is very annoying.

      I long ago removed any personal details from facebook. Don't think I've even logged on yet this year.

      I don't want to socialise via a huge corporation - much prefer a friendly forum like this. [​IMG]

      I just learned now. It isn't as if people weren't using them in facebook before. It is like the @ to call people. I think this is something that will become spread everywhere, the standard.

      I never did understand hashtags, but I guess it works for people.

      It's good for promotional purposes to help reach a wider audience I will admit, other than that I do not see a point. I have seen people use hashtags and just put things like #yawn or #sleepy. Not too sure where that is going to work though.

      I guess it's only really useful for pages, personal profile statuses serves no purpose with the hashtag thing though.

      Totally agree, people just seem to use them because they are there. To be honest and as harsh as it may sound I just think it makes people look silly when they put #boredoutmyface or#tired.com as their status lol

      I agree though for pages and such it's great to get some exposure especially if the update you post has a hashtag that is trending at that time.
