6 hashtags you’ll definitely see on Facebook


IT WAS INEVITABLE, and now it’s a reality.

Facebook has enabled the use of hashtags, following in the footsteps of Twitter and Instagram.

Up until now, when we’ve seen people using hashtags on Facebook we’ve been a little:

or maybe a bit:

Now though, they’re legit.

Here are the ones we’re bound to be hit with:

If we get that glorious sunshine back, Facebook will again be awash with #IrishSummer photos of 99s and beaches and pint bottles of Bulmers…
