Yes, when I was growing up, "#" was called a "pound sign" or someone would use it in front of your phone number. Now, it's known as a "hashtag."
But what's a hashtag? It's now used as a device to widen the social media database for more people to see something else related to what you're looking at.
For instance, Instagram or Facebook. This is a prime example when to use hashtags, this is how you will be able to get more exposure for your images/posts.
But how do you hashtag? Hashtags can be more than one word, but there can't be any spaces. If there are spaces, then it just won't work. Here's a little example, I have a hashtag I created: #WesternRoseStudios
I hope you stay awhile. This is where I will talk about my paintings, processes, photography & adventures, post processing, social media, and more.
