When you try to search some information or data in "Facebook Search Box", there are times that results are not that related to your keywords. Luckily and finally, Facebook, the number one Social Media site, gets Hashtag Support. On the coming weekends, Facebook Hashtag will be visible to users which give them the opportunity to be informed and to join a public conversation with their interests just like NBA Finals, Game of Thrones or The Vampire Diaries Episodes, or any topics.

" During primetime television alone, there are between 88 and 100 million Americans engaged on Facebook - roughly a Super Bowl-sized audience every single night. The recent "Red Wedding" episode of Game of Thrones, received over 1.5 million mentions on Facebook, representing a significant portion of the 5.2 million people who watched the show. And this year's Oscars buzz reached an all-time high on Facebook with over 66.5 million interactions, including likes, comments, and posts. " said Greg Lindley a Facebook post.
Introducing Hashtags on Facebook
Starting today, hashtags will be clickable on Facebook. Similar to other services like Instagram, Twitter, Tumblr, or Pinterest, hashtags on Facebook allow you to add context to a post or indicate that it is part of a larger discussion. When you click on a hashtag in Facebook, you'll see a feed of what other people and Pages are saying about that event or topic.
Now you can:
• Search for a specific hashtag from your search bar. For example, #NBAFinals.
• Click on hashtags that originate on other services, such as Instagram.
• Compose posts directly from the hashtag feed and search results.
As always, you control the audience for your posts, including those with hashtags.
On the coming weeks, more features will be rolled out just like trending hashtags and deeper insights, that help people discover more of the world's conversations.
