Haha exactly. It doesn't particularly get on my nerves, but it's just so pointless for it to be on Facebook and the like. I: Just doesn't make sense to me.

Yeah, you search via hash tags like you would on Twitter.

    Yeah it bothers me when people on Facebook use hashtags. I don't see a point in it.

      I know right? Hash-tags were originally from Twitter, but it seems like they have moved out and have spread across other social networking sites, especially Facebook. I always see people posting up pictures with #hash-tags #like #this when there doesn't seem to be any point in doing so. == Why not just keep the hash-tags to Twitter? Did this trend come from Instagram where they use hash-tags to search for images and stuff? I don't use Instagram; I don't know anything about it except that it's where people post photos and edit them with filters to get likes and comments lol.

        Twitter has made people use hashtags now xD. I see them everywhere, even people talking general say hashtag. My friend was doing something (I forgot what), and then he said #determination...

        I remember the good old days when I used hashtags in my signature lol.

        #shechangedsomuchsincethen
        #DontBeLikeOshyHikari

        I love making my own hashtags too.

        I personally think that hashtags are overrated. They're popping up almost everywhere and I'm getting kind of sick about it.

        Hashtags in Twitter are perfectly fine as I use them a lot, but hashtags anywhere else is just too much. I think normal sentences are a much better alternative. :/

        Wow, still on hashtags, hmm?

        This might just be me, but does anyone else think of a hashbrown (I just realized how incredibly stupid that word is...) when someone says "hashtag"?

        Me and my friends actually use hasshtags when we talk or when we talk to each other on Facebook to mock other people that uses it constantly everywhere in their life. We would talk like

        'let's go out today #hot #hangout #swaqq'

        You don't have to use them on Twitter, like you don't have to tag a blog. Twitter is microblogging - the tags are meant to group microblogs together, just like blog tags.

        I heard someone talking like that a while ago, but I think they were just talking about their overuse of hashtags. :? I don't know- I walked away once I could get through the group of teenagers that were blocking my way.

        Doesn't bother me when people use them on facebook, though. But that could be because only one person I actually read the posts of uses them.

          See, it bothers me when people use hashtags on Facebook as they don't really serve that much of a purpose, as you can't use them to search for things. People just think they're being 'clever' and 'ironic', when they're just being 'twee' and 'annoying'. While I often find them annoying on Twitter (especially when people make up really long ones for their own use that no one else will care about), at least they have a function.

          I think how annoyed you are by certain things is really proportional to how often you see them. People get annoyed at constant baby pictures but I only have one friend with a baby so it doesn't bother me. People get annoyed at engagement ring pictures but I only have 3 engaged friends so I barely see them. Stuff like that.

          True.
          I don't have enough experience with twitter to know anything much about it, though.

          Also- what the heck is your signature? ಠ_ಠ

          No thanks. Not a fan of American football. Plus, if the local team looses I'm gonna wanna be far away from anything to do with this.

          I don't really care much about sports. A friend of mine is probably going out of his mind with excitement right now, though. x:

          So today will be spent on PC and playing Pokemon. Not exactly everyone's idea of a fun weekend, but seems fine to me.

          My mom is going to go to a party hosted by a co-worker later, but I have a room that I need to try and clean out by the end of today so new carpet can be installed in it tomorrow.

            I think people just use hashtags on other places than twitter to seem trendy. I'm also not much of a sports person haha..
