Facebook is on a roll. The world's largest online social network posted sharply higher earnings on Wednesday as revenue from mobile advertising continued to grow, and more people used it, more often.
CLEVELAND - Facebook takes a page out of Twitter's playbook and introduces hashtags.
Over the next few weeks Facebook users will be able to include a hashtagged phrase, like #royalbaby or #NBAplayoffs, in their posts. When a hashtag is included in a post, clicking on it will pop out a feed that finds other posts with the same tagged phrase.
The new feature will make it easier to find out what other people are saying about specific topics or events. Facebook users will also be able to search for a specific hashtag from the search bar.
The new feature will be rolled out to users over the next few weeks.
