Defining the Hashtag for Facebook Fans is it's coming soon!

Better late than never the Hashtag is now coming to Facebook.  One of the questions everyone on Facebook will be asking is Do You Like?  Before answering that question I think it is only fair to explain what a hashtag is to our friends who do not know.


What is a hashtag

“A hashtag is a word or a phrase prefixed with the symbol #.[1][2] It is a form of metadata tag.
