A hashtag is a pound sign that looks like a tic-tac-toe board and makes it easier for users to find messages with a specific theme or content....It draws attention to what you want it to....You place a # in front of a word or unspaced phrase so it can be found in searches... if promoted enough it can attract more individual users to whatever you have attached it to.. And can be considered as "trending" or "trending topics" when huge numbers of people
are searching that hashtag word/words..
Hashtags can draw people-customers to you and your business.
Hashtags are also used express humor, excitement, sadness or other emotions or feelings....DON'T overuse or become spammy with your hashtags...1 or 2 hashtags are all you need in your posts...
Tweets with hashtags received 2 times more engagements than those without them...
A hashtag is simply a way for people to search for things on the internet,in groups,in social networks etc.. that have a common topic.You can double your engagement with hashtags !
Hashtags help you get found by your target audience ! What a huge help ! Say you are selling #antiaging #skincare people searching for products to help with #saggyskin will probably pull up your hashtag in their search ! How cool is that ?

Hashtags on Google Plus can help your posts to go outside your circle of google friends and the great thing is even if you forget or don't bother to hashtag your post google will ! Isn't that great !
