Get Ready for #Facebook #Hashtags

Facebook has apparently decided that it is not enough like Twitter, so it is “working on incorporating the hashtag, one of Twitter Inc.’s most iconic markers, into its service,” according to The Wall Street Journal. Having hashtags will allow Facebook to build topics around specific conversations and sell ads against those topics. It will also allow your high-school friends to collect all their thoughts about #pregnancy and #weddings and #obamamuslimtakeover in one place.
