#Hashtags Will Prevail!

The #hashtag has been identified as a fundamental aspect in the world of social media, it acts as a catalyst in the development and activity of one’s online presence and persona. It has the ability to send droves of new audiences to your content and at the same time give you the opportunity to find your target collective.

As the technological world evolves around us it is expected that we learn it’s language and the hashtag is a key term in which will help us communicate to the world.
