Hashtags. What Did You Say?
When instagram started back then, I didn’t understand what hashtag is. In fact, I still don’t understand what hashtag is.
I saw people hashtag-ing a bunch of stuff whenever they post a photo on instagram and Facebook, I never understand why they hashtag-ed. I can understand the “tags” in a blog, but not the photo hashtag on instagram. For example:
#cuppa #cappuccino #coffee #coffeeart #cafe #teatime #photooftheday #bestcoffeeintown #chillax #husband #dayoff
What?????? You have the time to “hash” your words but you can’t write a complete proper sentence that everyone can understand easily??????????????? And yes, I can see that it is a coffee, with the art, and it must be in a cafe and you’re chillaxing…… Sorry…… Is that really necessary????????? Oh wait, photo of the day??????? Oh ppuuuhhhhhhllleeeeaaaassssseeeeee……
What’s the purpose of hastag? Ohhh…… So that people can find a bunch of similar photos (or people) under the same hashtag.
#cat #tissue #mycat #cutecat #photooftheday #ilovecats #fatcat
Okay…… I can see that is a cat and it’s cute…… And yes I know that is your cat ’cause I’ve seen it many times on your Facebook. Again, photo of the day????????? What the……
I’m not hating, don’t get me wrong. I just find that it is wasting time to do the hashtag thingy. If ever my friends want to find my photos, they can well go to my profile and look for it instead of looking under the hashtag which has millions of photos under it.
Also, where is the proper language that we were taught to speak and write? We are already pretty bad in communicating in this world of social media, hashtags just make things worse.
I don’t care if you hashtag, all I care is you and what your photo is trying to say.
Here’s a funny video about the hashtags, I couldn’t stop laughing. :D
