I’m afraid it’s true. I have no idea what a hashtag does. No, I’m not kidding. I know. I know. They have been around for forever and a day. I even remember watching a skit on either Tonight Show or on SNL where Justin Timberlake and Jimmy Fallon crisscrossed two fingers to make a hashtag symbol and used it before every single thing they said. It was hilarious. Even if I didn’t know exactly what they were talking about. And that was how many years ago? Two or three, at least. And I can’t tell you why I haven’t taken the time to look it up. I’m actually fascinated by the general gist I’ve gotten from hearing other people talk about using them. So let me get this right, you can write a word or phrase after the number symbol and voila, it goes…where exactly?
Hashtag Land, wherever and whatever that is, must be bursting at the seams with all the categories. How are they organized? Is Hashtag Land like Facebook? You log in and have a profile and register your “site” as http://www.#sitename.com and then every time someone else on the planet types #sitename it shows up on your page? Like they intentionally used that exact phrase to communicate about a commonality? Like I said…fascinating. For some reason I just can’t imagine what it looks like.
Are there themes to these pages too? I mean, do you decorate your “walls”? And if so, is there a grand pooba of moderation that censors the content people are using to decorate said walls? I hope so ’cause, I mean, I’ve seen some pretty…uh…interesting hashtags created if that’s the case. And I’m not sure I’d want to see some of those walls. You can’t unsee some things.
What does that dude’s wall look like? Ha! Ewww!
Noooo, thank you.
Hmmm, curiouser and curiouser I become. I’ll have to check out this Hashtag Land soon.
AFTER I hang Merrick’s picture though. 😉
