One example is that anyone can decide which appropriate keywords to use for their posts and websites. However, another user may use the same keyword but not for the same intended content. Perhaps she/he may be using it to gain wider exposure for her/his own personal branding, instead of what’s relevant to the hashtag’s intended results. Seems like a small issue at first, but if everyone were to abuse the hashtags choices of key words by plotting every word they could find in the dictionary, very soon these hashtags will depreciate and deemed not helpful to users anymore.
Another reason for labeling spams against hashtags, was that relatively few people know how to use hashtags. And among those, most of them were slightly spammy. Perhaps this mindset would change if more people know how use hashtags correctly.
However, there are also circumstances where people use hashtags to associate posts with a common topic, for discussions and updates, because hashtags help to make sense for these conversations identified with a common trend. And these hashtags are not spams – they are intended.
Now over to you, how do you utilize hashtags in your daily posts?
