Top Education Social Media Hashtags

twitter logoWe all relate #hashtags to Twitter, but we can now see these hashtags being used with multiple social media sites. Hashtags are ways to “tag”or label posts with specific keywords. They allow us to organize and find information based upon the keyword we assign to the post or entry. Like our blogs use keywords for SEO, and how we use “Tags” to help our visitors find related posts on our blogs, #hashtags allow us to find tweets and posts on social media sites. It is a very powerful organizational tool indeed.

No matter what you tweet or post about on other social media sites, there are #hashtags related to your niche or interests.

Twitter allows you to use their Twitter Search to search for or by popular hashtags.

Here are my favorite.
