Please watch our video clip on #hashtags…

#hashtags
were made popular by Chris Messina in August 2007 with his
#Twitter
#Tweet
and I quote
“how do you feel about using # (pound) for groups. As in #barcamp (msg)?
All of the social media platforms such as
#Facebook
#Instagram
#Twitter
and
#Pinterest
have since adapted the popular
#hashtag
Many businesses use the
#hashtag
on their social media platforms to promote
#contests
#giveaways
and
#events
An example would be the BC Childrens Hospital jeans day event
An annual fundraiser where everyone is encouraged to purchase a button or lapel pin
and wear it with their jeans to show their support to the BC Childrens Hospital.
You can purchase the buttons at any of these participating retailers
The jeans day event includes contests for individual, corporations, and schools. To enter you use
#hashtag
#JeanUp
to post your entries on
#instagram
and
#twitter
The next BC Childrens Hospital
#JeanUp
day is Thursday April 27, 2017
We hope you
#JeanUp
and show your support.
Please support BCCH and
#JeanUp
