What is a hashtag?

Form of tag used on social networks to facilitate the search for messages regarding a specific subject or content, and to generate related conversation. Initially used only on Twitter, but subsequently extended to other social networks, such as Facebook or Instagram.

A hashtag is created by adding a hash (#) symbol in front of the term or phrase (without spaces) to be tagged.
