Facebook has officially introduced the hashtag.
Announced yesterday, the social network officially started rolling out clickable hashtags in shared posts that take users to a separate public feed. Like Twitter, Facebook hashtags offer a useful way to explore trending topics and join in public discussions.
Twitter may have made the hashtag trend, but Facebook's got the mammoth userbase to make it work. Facebook users will be able to search for hashtags in the top search bar, click on them in their personal feeds or from other sources like Instagram, and add to the discussion directly from the hashtag feed.
