When applied strategically they can help you target specific users, and cast your net to a wider audience. It is also another way to form a connection with other influencers. Keep them relevant and be careful not to overdo it.

Hashtags you might consider include:

  • Facebook 1-2
  • Twitter 1-2
  • Pinterest 2-3
  • Instagram 10+
  • Google+ 2-3
