I am probably declaring war with the hashtags fanatics out there but yes, I can’t stand hashtags, period. What’s with uploading a picture of your meal and going #yummy #girlsnightout #foodporn #wine #happiness #whocaresaboutgettingfat and the list goes on. Come on people, write proper sentences! I think it is perfectly appropriate if the hashtags are used to link your pictures/videos/comments to certain events, brands, location or restaurants but excessive hashtags describing it is just strange. We have evolved from saying complete sentences, to short instant messages/texts to adjectives and random words?
Sorry if I offended people who uses hashtags excessively but it seems that I am not the only one who find this trend amusing. I’m sure most of you have seen this video of Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake making fun of hashtags which went viral online within a couple of days!
But closer to home, a Malaysian short video team -dmingthing – came out with this – If Hashtags were a Language – in August which was funny too! Been wanting to share but was procrastinating until Jimmy and Justin’s video was out and around!Haha.
