Facebook Working on Incorporating the Hashtag

Stashed in: Twitter!, Facebook!, Instagram!, FB

To save this post, select a stash from drop-down menu or type in a new one:

Facebook is testing whether to follow Twitter's lead and allow users to click on a hashtag to pull up all posts about similar topics or events so it can quickly index conversations around trending topics and build those conversations up, giving users more reason to stay logged in and see more ads. Instagram, which Facebook acquired last year, already uses hashtags, allowing users to sort photos by the symbol.

The only question is why it took Facebook so long to embrace the Hashtag.
