Facebook introduces Hashtags

When it debuted, Facebook sought to be an online extension of offline friendships, and required a bilateral agreement between two users before it allowed them to connect with one another. Users couldn’t just “follow” people they liked, as they can on sites like Instagram. They had to “friend” them. People knew who could see what they were sharing, and posted accordingly. The mandate that people use real names only increased the sense that people were socializing in the online equivalent of a college campus — a place filled with friends and friends-of-friends — not wandering through crowds and bumping up against tourists at a Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade.
