Explaining Social Media #Hashtags (Plus some controversy)

First, I shall explain hashtags.  For awhile, hashtags were mostly used on micro-social networks like Twitter and Instagram. Now, other sites (including Google+ and Facebook) use hashstags.  First, you type this symbol “#”.  Then after that symbol, you type a word.   Let’s say you upload a red rose photo.  These may be your hashtags: #rose, #redrose, #nature, #plants and #flowers.

If someone searches for flowers, your hashtag may lead to them to your photo.

One fine evening, I simultaneously uploaded a photo on Instagram and Facebook.  The photo?  A Burger King Double Whopper with Cheese. The following photo shows the hashtags I used.

HashtagsAmong my Facebook friends, #food caused an outrage.  One friend declared the Double Whopper was not food!  Another friend said she was going to pray for my arteries.  Another told me to ignore the hippies and eat the damned burger. Then, I received a lecture on how chain restaurant  burgers aren’t actually burgers.

For the curious, I present my Double Whopper with Cheese photo.  I ignored the hippies and ate it.
