Hashtags are any word in the social conversation that begins with the "#" symbol. Americans refer to it as a "pound sign", but it's known as a "hash" pretty much everywhere else. A "#" in front of a word like "cattle" makes it a hashtag: “#cattle”
WHERE DO I USE HASHTAGS?
Hashtags are most popular on social media websites. They became a trend on Twitter first. After that, other sites slowly began to incorporate their use. Facebook is one of the last social media sites to use hashtags.
WHAT ARE HASHTAGS USED FOR?
Hashtags let you associate your social media posts with a larger topic, group or conversation. It's like adding keywords to your message to make it globally searchable.

WHEN SHOULD I USE A HASHTAG?
You should use a hashtag when you are trying to talk about a specific topic. You can use one that's already created or completely make up your own and get a new topic started. Once you begin using hashtags, get creative and use keywords that others will search for. Doing so will enable others to find your contribution to the global conversation without having to know or follow you.
This is a tweet with examples of types of hashtags that can be created.
HOW DO I USE HASHTAGS?
Using hashtags is easy. You simply put the "#" sign in front of whatever it is you are trying to associate your post with. For example, #LivestockMarkets. A hashtag has to be one word or a phrase that is written together without spaces or punctuation. Underscores can be used, however.
Here a few examples of hashtag searches:

In conclusion, even though hashtags are relatively new to the world of business, their use is an essential marketing tool. Using hashtags will not only allow you to find people who share similar interests or types of business, but will help potential customers discover your company. Make it a habit to throw in a hashtag or two in your every day social media posts. You could be rewarded with new customers, followers/friends, and essential business awareness.
WHY use Facebook? Isn’t that for teenagers to talk with their friends?
We’re starting with a series on Facebook Business Pages for Cattlemen. If you don’t have a personal Facebook page, don’t post pictures daily, and don’t want to, that’s okay.
But, you SHOULD look at it from a business-use perspective.
It’s an easy-to-do, do-it-yourself, NO COST method of letting customers, and potential customers, KNOW about your business.
The business “value-to-cost” ratio is EXACTLY what Cattlemen need! It’s not cheap, … it’s FREE! It’s something for nothing! What’s not to like about that?
We have recently built ours, so we’re also just getting started. We’re not experts, but, as we sort it out, we’ll translate it into Cattlemen-terms and pass it along.
Its reach is EXTENSIVE across the country (world for that matter). It is able to create conversations and interaction with customers and other cattlemen, companies and associations. You can link your own company to any other company or article or post so that when other people are reading that article, they will have an opportunity to click on your comment and go to your page to see about your company. It can give you such an extensive outreach because these are the places that cattle people already go to. It is the most-used social media tool so if you only do 1 thing, do Facebook.

We’ll show you how to get started and how to use it, but, a little information each newsletter. Not all at once. It will be easier to digest that way. This month’s is getting started and first building your business Facebook page. We found a great article with the step-by-step instructions to create your business page. We have made some alterations to it to better fit our cattlemen audience and some findings from setting up our page.
