Since Twitter introduced #hashtags back in the beginning of time, Facebook has finally came around the bend and implemented hashtags as well.
But until now the real joke was that, for some reason, people have been using hashtags on Facebook for quite sometime to no greater effect, either by accident or because they thought it was funny or cool, which then spawned an entire series of jokes in response:
But wait, #hashtags on Facebook finally work…
So how do we feel about it now?

Why does everyone complain about hashtags on Facebook but no one has ever had a problem with it on Twitter?!

The game of social network #hashtags is on, and it looks like you’re it!
What concerns me though is if Facebook is finally on board, what’s next, are we going to start saying the word Hashtag out loud or even worse get Hashtag tattoos or start naming our children that?
