How to use hashtags and grow reach on every social network?




There was a time when the symbol ‘#’ which was known as a simple pound sign or hash mark. But with the consistent upward trending of the social networks, this conventional symbol has been turned into an online sensation. Nowadays, you will find the usage of hashtags on most of the social platforms especially Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, and many other social media channels. This tool can turn any tiny post into the trending one and ignoring it while writing a publicly oriented post can be kind of stupidity. It is quite normal that most of the readers are reading this post to find out the answers of various questions relating to the Hashtags which are arising in their minds. These questions can be: What exactly is a hashtag? How to use Hashtags? How to use them on various social media channels? Do-and-Don’ts practices while using the hashtags etc. Don’t worry! In this post, we are going to clear all of these questions and will add some more valuable information in your knowledge base about the hashtags.

What is a hashtag?

Third party image

Every second, thousands of images are publicly shared on every social platform which makes the low possibility for your post to come into the limelight, unless and until you are having a large number of followers. So, here the hashtags play their role. A hashtag is a keyword or phrase which is used after the # itself. It can be used while writing a post or comment to specifically highlight it. With the aid of hashtags, your post can be indexed by the social network which makes your post discoverable to everyone, even to the users who are not included in your followers or fan base. 

Why you should go with hashtags?

For the social media users who are not having a good number of followers should go with hashtags to get more engaged and garner more followers and fans. They should try to imitate the hashtags used by the popular influencers.

How to use hashtags on various social platforms?

As previously shared, most of the social media platforms are embracing the hashtags. Twitter was the first one to adopt it. The usage rules can be different for all of the social platforms which you will learn in the upcoming part of this article.

Twitter Hashtags

On Twitter, hashtags are used to explore the conversations to get engaged in or to start afresh of your own. People can find the posts which have used the hashtags and as long as they are shared publicly.

Tweets which are having one hashtag create the most engagement and this engagement start dropping with the usage of more than two hashtags. The reason behind dropping this engagement is too many hashtags may indicate a kind of desperation or spam etc.

You can explore hashtags on Twitter with the assistance of the search bar, by clicking on the hashtag or going through with the trending topics.

Instagram Hashtags

This example will give you more clarity to you about the hashtags. If you are sharing a picture relating to your last travel adventures then you can use the hashtag #Travel or #Adventure and now any of the users who will click on this hashtag will find all of the pictures shared by others users by using this hashtag.

A study indicates that posts which are having at least one hashtag have 12.6% more engagement than the photos which don’t use it.

You can discover hashtags by making a search of a specific term. As you will land on a hashtag page, here you will see the related hashtags used on such photos. As you will type the hashtag (#)in the search box, Instagram will give you more suggestions on the basis of popularity.

The number of hashtags to be used in an Instagram post is one of the frequently asked questions. There is no unanimously agreed upon number. Unlike Twitter, you can use more than 2 hashtags on Instagram but we do not recommend filling your post with them. Event Instagram itself limits hashtags to 30 per caption or on a comment.

Facebook Hashtags

Similar to Instagram, you can explore the hashtags on Facebook. But keep the number 1-2 hashtags per post. It’s also recommended that hashtags which are having 10+ characters receive good engagement.

LinkedIn Hashtags

LinkedIn is experimenting with hashtags. For the time being, they work only on mobile. 

Tumblr Hashtags

On Tumblr, while creating a post, you’ll find there an option to add “tags.” As you will start typing the tag for your post, the hashtags will automatically be added in your post. 

Pinterest Hashtags

Unlike Twitter, Instagram or Facebook, on Pinterest tags are only clickable in a Pin description. Further, they can be searched by using the search bar all you will have to do is just search the keyword to find the relevant content. 

YouTube Hashtags

Now users can use hashtags on YouTube while writing a comment on videos. By clicking on such hashtag, users will be redirected to a page which is having the videos having such hashtag in their title. However, hashtags on YouTube are not widely adopted by users till now. Maybe YouTube will come with some innovations in it. 

Other Social Networks

There are some other social media platforms too which are using the hashtags and these are:

  • Flickr
  • GitHub
  • Google+

However, recently Google has made the announcement to close its Google+ service next year.

Do’s and Don’ts while using hashtags

Use the specific hashtags: If you will use very general hashtags, then your post may get lost in thousands of results so try to be specific while using the hashtags. You should try relevant and unbranded hashtags. An example can be instead of using #Food use the name of the dish such as #Pasta #Pizza.

Use long hashtags only to create personalized content or branding: If you want to create your personalized hashtags and only you want to them then its fine to use long hashtags. But make sure that your hashtags can be distinguished. Example: #NothingJustMyIdioticThoughts is better than #nothingjustmyidioticthoughts. Similarly, #SometimesITooLoveWtiting is better than #sometimesitoolovewtiting But in general, it is always suggested to use short hashtags such #MyDiary #MyJournal #MyWords etc. to get more engaged.

Don’t have more hashtags than words:

  1. #Don’t #react #like #a #dumb #by #using #too #much #hashtags.
  2. Try to be a little #rational.

We hope that, from the above two examples, you got our message.

Don’t hashtag everything: Try to be natural; it is not a mandate to use hashtags in all of your posts. Try to use them in a natural manner by placing it before a single or two words or your post or by putting it in the comment box.

Bonus for the readers who reach here: You can use to find hashtags. It will assist you to map a hashtag in relation to other similar options.

Hyundai Ioniq 5: This is how much the special electric car costs in Germany



It was officially presented in February 2021, and the Ioniq 5 from Hyundai can now also be pre-ordered in Germany. It’s a special electric car that can charge other electric cars. The manufacturer has even thought of a solar roof – and it’s affordable.

Hyundai Ioniq 5 from 41,900 euros in Germany

When the Ioniq 5 from Hyundai was presented, the South Korean manufacturer had a few surprises in store. The e-car can be transformed into a charging station, so to speak, and thus supply other electric cars with electricity. The best equipment comes with a solar roof. According to the manufacturer, the electricity generated in this way should provide an additional range of up to 2,000 kilometers per year.

The guesswork about the possible price of the special electric car is now over. A configurator has appeared on the Hyundai website that reveals the final secrets. Accordingly, the electric car will be available in Germany for 41,900 euros. In this case, there is an electric motor with an output of 125 kW (170 hp). Consumption according to the WLTP standard is 16.3-kilowatt hours per 100 kilometers. The specified range is 400 kilometers with a 58 kWh battery and rear-wheel drive.

A better-equipped variant offers a range of up to 470 kilometers. Here, according to WLTP, consumption of 17.1-kilowatt-hours per 100 km can be assumed. The datasheet states 160 kW (217 hp) of power and the battery has a capacity of 72.6-kilowatt hours. In this case, Hyundai would like to have 45,100 euros. Alternatively, the Ioniq 5 is also available with a dual-engine and 225 kW (305 hp) for 48,900 euros. The Ioniq 5 will then be delivered “in summer”.

Hyundai Ioniq 5 with “high-speed charging”

Hyundai advertises with its electric car, among other things, with a “high-speed charging”. Assuming a corresponding charging point, the battery can be charged from 10 to 80 percent in 18 minutes. Even five minutes of charging time should be enough to offer a range of 100 km.

Galaxy S21 FE: Samsung disappoints with the battery



With the Galaxy S21 FE, an interesting Samsung mobile phone awaits us, with many elements of the Galaxy S21 to be found. As it turns out, there is a bit of a disappointment with the battery. Unlike its predecessor, this will not be based on the Plus version. Nevertheless, the Galaxy S21 FE should be a very decent cell phone.

Samsung Galaxy S21 FE: Battery with 4,500 mAh

Little by little, more and more details about the Fan Edition of the Galaxy S21 from Samsung are coming to light. As SamMobile would like to know now, the battery of the Galaxy S21 FE will have a capacity of 4,500 mAh. In direct comparison with the predecessor, it was not enough for a stronger battery. In contrast to the Galaxy S20 FE, the Plus version of the Galaxy S21 was not based on.

Nevertheless, the Fan Edition of the Galaxy S21 is sure to find a lot of fans. According to previous reports, the phone will be equipped with an AMOLED display with a diagonal of 6.4 inches. A resolution of Full HD + can be assumed. The fingerprint sensor for identifying the user will be located in the display.

The processor is still unclear. It remains to be seen whether Samsung will opt for the Snapdragon 888 or the in-house development Exynos 2100. The internal capacity can be assumed to be 128 or 256 GB, depending on the model.

Samsung Galaxy S21 FE from August 2021

The other highlights of the mobile phone include video recording with 4K resolution and protection class IP68. Even if the battery does not have the largest capacity, it can probably be charged with up to 25 watts using a cable.

While Samsung took its time with the predecessor last year until October, the Galaxy S21 FE is expected to be released in August 2021. There is still no information about the possible price. The predecessor started at 599.99 euros but is now much cheaper to get.

iMac Pro 2021: What If Jony Ive Never Left Apple?



An era ended two years ago and Apple’s longtime product designer Jonathan “Jony” ‘s finally turned his back on the iPhone manufacturer. Malicious tongues claim: This is what you can see in Apple’s latest products. But what if he had never left Apple, what would the upcoming iMac Pro 2021 look like? The answer to that looks amazingly good.

Apple still owes us a new iMac Pro, most recently we were only presented with the brightly colored 24-inch model with the fast M1 chip. The Pro version, on the other hand, is likely to be added in the next few months. The design should not change compared to the iMac 2021.

But is the shape successful? Quite a few find the new iMac anything but appealing. There is still more, right? How would Jony Ive, Apple’s long-time product designer and close friend of Steve Jobs, who died far too early have acted, what would his iMac Pro look like today?

iMac Pro 2021: Apple’s quote from Dieter Rams and Jony Ive?

The French graphic artist Virgile Arlaud from Nice gives us a possible and, above all, really good-looking answer. His “iMac Pro M1” literally soaks up the design DNA of a Jony Ive with the virtual drawing pen. The basic shape is still based on the 2012 model. Why make something perfect worse for better or for worse? Instead, the convex basic shape remains unchanged.

On the other hand, the changes to the base are visible It is more delicate, a filigree steel frame supports the computer sculpture. Arlaud also confirmed its clear inspiration for his iMac Pro quoted deliberately at this point by ee he famous speakers LE 1 of Dieter Rams. That fits, after all, Rams are proven to be one of Jony Ive’s great role models. Apple’s products from the last 20 years would not have been possible without the work of the Wiesbaden-based company.

Look at a detail

Interesting for technicians: power is available via a detachable USB-C or Thunderbolt cable . Perhaps not as clever as the new, magnetic power connection on the existing iMac 2021, but more universal, more sustainable. Can be exchanged faster. Dieter Rams would like something like that, after all, for him, good design has to be durable and environmentally friendly.
