Facebook to introduce hashtags

hashtag twitter

Mike Isaac, for AllThingsD:

At least, not yet. As was previously reported by The Wall Street Journal, and as I’ve verified through sources of my own, Facebook plans to launch its own Linkify’d version of the hashtag, allowing users to connect common themes and trending topics around the social network by adding the simple hashtag symbol to a status update. Clicking through sends a reader down a rabbit hole of information, all connected to the hashtag being followed.

On the plus side, I’m past the age where I’d have to see high school girls using them. #drama
