Facebook Hashtags are here!

After all the talk, Facebook has finally started rolling out Hashtag support.  According to Facebook, many users already post hashtags anyway, so their motive is ‘why not make them work’.  Hashtags will now be both clickable and searchable.

If I’m honest, I’m not sure whether I’m ecstatic or sceptical about this. I can see many Facebook users using Hashtags inappropriately and because there is no character count, I’m keeping my eye out for who can post the longest Hashtag.

I’m also interested to find out whether Facebook will integrate Hashtag search results with the likes of Twitter and Instagram. Only time will tell.

What do you think about Facebook’s decision to finally integrate Hashtags?

Lights, camera, Twitter! Twitter launches #FollowMe video service

Last week, Twitter launched a new tool that allows users to instantly create shareable movies depicting their social footprint, top tweets, photos and followers. The new venture called #FollowMe, allows you to include music from a selection of 30 licensed soundtracks from Rumblefish.

Personally, I love this idea. It might not be client-focussed but it would be great to use on your personal Twitter accounts.
