The damn hashtag. Ya, know the sign formally known as the pound sign. Yes, it's like Prince.
Except not nearly as cool.
It's really obnoxious to see on Facebook, in blog posts and of course in tweets. It doesn't make you look cool - it makes you look dumb. Like Zubaz.
Just say no!
I know this is the 'social media' age and whatever, but somethings should just stop. Or there should be some kind of hashtag etiquette.
1. NO HASHTAGS in blog post. Please, just don't do it. Writing #Coolestdayever does not emphasize how cool it was, it just annoys the crap out of me that I had to read it written like that. Just write coolest day ever - your point will come across just fine.
2. NO HASHTAGS on Facebook. Facebook doesn't even recognize the hashtag so typing it in there, makes you look silly and your status look dumb.
3. Enough with the stupid sayings, on twitter, pinterest whatever. It's not #Epic. with or without a hashtag it's dumb. That is hashtag abuse. Actually if you do use hashtags in your posts, or 20 word hashtags on twitter I unfollow you. It's like that passive aggressive talking like a baby crap. If you have something to say....Just. Say. It.
Please people, I am trying to help you, I am like your Hashtag sponsor here to tell you that you look silly using them and abusing them. I'm not telling you to stop completely, but just take it down a notch.
