Today we have breaking news from the House of Zuckerberg.
Conversations will now become a little more discoverable (if you wish), with the announcement that Facebook are finally introducing a long-missing feature to the News feeds…..clickable hashtags.
If like me, you love a hashtag search on Twitter & Instagram you’ll be thrilled with the promise of this feature.
Until this news, hashtags from imported tweets or Instagram posts showed up as regular text…and no backlinks. And, weighing up the visibility of hashtags and privacy, Facebook won’t allow for unintended audiences to see your private updates.
Facebook’s Greg Lindley has also announced they have plans to roll out trending hashtags and other related features in the coming months. Row over to the link here. http://www.theaustralian.com.au/news/breaking-news/facebook-to-introduce-clickable-hashtags/story-fn3dxix6-1226662917839
