What is tag?
Tag is a non-hierarchical keyword or term assigned to a piece of information (such as an Internet bookmark, digital image, or computer file). This kind of metadata helps describe an item and allows it to be found again by browsing or searching. Tags are generally chosen informally and personally by the item’s creator or by its viewer, depending on the system.(from wikipedia)
Many blog systems allow authors to add free-form tags to a post, along with (or instead of) placing the post into categories. For example, a post may display that it has been tagged with baseball and tickets.(from wikipedia)
An official tag is a keyword adopted by events and conferences for participants to use in their web publications, such as blog entries, photos of the event, and presentation slides.(from wikipedia)

Firstly when I saw the world hashtag ,I think of that are you serious?hashtag is so common to me ,I used it very frequentvly when I use my facebook,twitter,Instagram or blog.However when i finished this task ,I realized that hashtag is not only just great for small groups and attract the people to follow you but also a great way to organize your followers and get the word out about your brand.
This really made me consider my use of hashtags and how important they can be to promoting and marketing your product to your audience. They need to be relevant, catchy and state what you are talking about so that the audience know precisely what to look for without having to think too much about it. The spelling should also be correct and the hashtags themselves, catch but simple.
In my instagram,i used post some picture about melbourne,and i tag my pic with melbourne,so if the people want to see some news about melbourne,they maybe have a change to find me .
After my research ,i take to heart to consider i will use my hashtag in my project when i promote my project-rebuild bohol! And for encourage our stealth audience can catch our propose with i want the people who can see this event.Firstly,this is an event about rebuild,so I would tag some organization they care about rebuild,such like:RSC,WHO.Secondly,this is about children,so I also tag some organization they care about children.Thirdly,it is an event about music,so I will add some hashtag with music.Then ,this event will present at melbourne and it is about choir.In one world,I will try our best to let this event known by more and more people .
But I think Keep it Short may made your hashtag more easier to remember and spread.
I really believe that Hashtag can make it easier for people to find you and get your ideas.
