Remember when Twitter was invented and we all learned how to use hashtags? It was hard to grasp, but we caught on pretty fast. And then, sometimes, we used hashtags out of context on Facebook or in a text to be funny, and it was super hilarious. That was fun.
Then things got out of control. #overuse #toomuchhashtag #nocomprendo #GrandmaSaysHuh?
You know what I’m talking about. Facebook statuses peppered with hashtags which are sometimes indecipherable. They are an abbreviation for a complete thought, less than a footnote but somehow more intrusive. Are you getting sick of hashtags?
Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake have captured the extreme overuse of hashtags in this video. It’s hilarious. You will love it. #funny #mustwatch #lololololololololol #lolz
