Roxi Nicolussi- #Hashtag

Posted: October 9, 2013 in Uncategorized

This video was quite popular a few weeks ago. It features Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake speaking the way that many type nowadays. We have become obsessed with the use of hashtags, so much that they have become a sort of commodity. Instead of needing the right amount of brand name products, it is about ‘fans’. One’s number of followers and likes on Instagram, for example, shows whether or not they are accepted by society. Similar to the way people can buy their way into acceptable society, followers can now be PURCHASED! Hashtags are used so that people’s photos can be seen under many different categories, thus giving their photos more opportunities to get ‘likes’.

Certain hashtags have grown popular such as #ootd (outfit of the day). #tfl (tags for likes) and many more. People who desperately seek a lot of likes and followers will hashtag everything in or relevant to their photo. #paragraph #words #roxi #jt #lol #followers #likes #hashtag #yolo #meninshirts #catsinhats #hippopotamus #why? #nobodyknows
