Honestly, I had no idea about this till today…however embarrassing that might be. But I just couldn’t figure out why my recent daily challenge pics on Instagram weren’t posting correctly. So to the almighty Google I went, and yay, darkness enlightened!
Here’s what I learned regarding the power of the @ and the #:
Use the @ sign when tagging a specific person or company in your post in order to alert them directly.
Use the # sign for general tagging, as in, #dogsrule and everyone’s posts with that specific hashtag will appear in their own special group when you click that hashtag.
So happy to be a little more social media savvy. Thanks, Google, once again! #suchanewbie
