25 Popular Hashtags to Maximize Exposure to Your Content

Hashtags are one of the most controversial phenomena in today’s digital culture. It seems like social media users are split between those who adore and obsessively use hashtags to those who’d rather day than “contaminate” their posts.

In reality, both factions have a point. On the one hand, hashtags have the advantage of connecting your posts to a broader theme /trend and increasing their visibility to an audience that does not necessarily follow your feeds. In this way they are an effective social media marketing tactic. Hashtags can also be used in a playful or satirical way that adds a witty edge to your post.

On the other hand, hashtags often interfere with the post’s natural flow, and too many people abuse this features to push spammy content into other people’s feeds. This practice is perceived as intrusive and can be more harmful than productive for brands on social media.
