Twitter Hashtags now Facebook Friendly – #FixitFriday

Facebook just announced that Hashtag use is now available to a small percentage of people and Pages on Facebook, and will be rolled out more broadly in the coming weeks.

Marketers need to know:
  • If you are already using hashtags in an advertising campaign through other channels, you can amplify these campaigns by including your hashtags in Facebook advertising. The same creative best practices on Facebook still apply – compelling copy and photography that is in the brand voice works best.
  • Any hashtags that you use on other platforms that are connected to your Facebook Page will be automatically clickable and searchable on Facebook.
  • Like other Facebook marketing tools, hashtags allow you to join and drive the conversations happening about your business. It is recommended you search for and view real-time public conversations and test strategies to drive those conversations using hashtags.
  • Hashtags do not impact your distribution or engagement in News Feed on either desktop or mobile. It is recommended you continue to focus on your existing campaigns to drive your most important business objectives.
Hashtags are a first step in surfacing relevant and important public conversations.  Over time Facebook’s goal is to build out additional functionality for marketers including trending hashtags and new insights so that you can better understand how hashtags fit into your overall Facebook advertising strategies and drive your business objectives.

My favorite hashtag for my business is #FixitFriday. I have a Facebook contest every Friday where others comment on my status update and then I choose a winner randomly based on the order of their comments and using random.org. Winners receive a free photo editing service on a pet-related photo. Don’t be shy – check my page every Friday for the next contest! Here is the latest winner’s before and after.
