A hashtag is a keyword or phrase preceded by the hash symbol (#), that people include in their social media posts. Essentially, it makes the content of your post accessible to all people with similar interests, even if they’re not your followers or friends. With the hashtags support you and Your Community can tag posts according to the topics they relate to the most. It’s no longer one of many posts on the community.

Twitter and Instagram are prime examples of services which engagement largely depends on usage of hashtags. Users there find the content they’re interested in by browsing posts with a particular hashtag. Now so can Your Community. Your Members with the help of hashtags can focus on the posts they’re really interested in.

The plugin also come with a built-in hashtag search. Apart from the regular search in PeepSo you can combine the search with searching for hashtags to narrow posts even further. You can search either by clicking a hashtag or by using the search field. Search also indicates to members what are the minimum and maximum character counts for hashtags. Search results will only show posts users are allowed to see, posts privacy is respected fully.
