Last week, Facebook introduced the ability for users to include hashtags in their posts. The item, similar to that used on Twitter, would be used to group certain topics that would be part of a larger discussion, according to a statement from the social network.
This has some opportunities for public broadcasters. While no formal plans have been made by any thus far, it has been indicated that it is being widely considered for usage.
What do you think? What role does the Facebook hashtag have in public broadcasting?
If you're a public media professional, how can you (or your station) see this being a part of your strategy?
If you're a consumer, what role does the hashtag have for you? Would you want to use it?
