How to use hashtags on Google+

A hashtag is a word or a phrase (without spaces) preceded by the # symbol – for example, #Cooking – that helps people find and join conversations about a particular topic. Click a hashtag to show related content.

Using hashtags in your posts

Use hashtags by typing them in the text of your post. Here are some examples:

  • “I've just learned these great #VeganCooking tips.”
  • “#Mondays are the worst. #SleepDeprived #SoMuchToDo”
