What’s the best way to stay current and get seen on Social Media? It’s #hashtags! Using the right hashtag at the right times shows that your business is listening to its followers and staying on trend. A great way to find new followers and interact with the platform as a whole is to incorporate hashtag usage into your posts. It allows users who may not have been following you, to see your content and increase your exposure.

A trending hashtag is one that has recently gained popularity for one reason or another. It could be something as obvious as a holiday or event, but it could also be more obscure like something that John Oliver said on an Last Week Tonight (#LetLetItGoGo).
