The #hashtag is formally making its way to Facebook, but they’ve been there for much longer. The old-timers among us—you know, them 20-somethings—may shake their heads at the functionless hashtags on Facebook and YouTube, but let’s take a moment to appreciate the implication this has on culture. It’s interesting how the hashtag naturally found its way into our writing. It’s even more interesting when you consider that the hashtag first emerged organically on Twitter when users decided to invent their own way to categorize their tweets. We are witnessing the latest evolution of the English language. Facebook’s introduction of hashtags is another example of how media follows culture, and not the other way around.
