Hashtag conversations

I mentioned how I feel about these last month. (See post Married with Hashtag) Now it is in the news!

“Hashtags are an interesting cultural meme,” says Jonah Berger, author of ‘Contagious: Why Things Catch On’ and a marketing professor at the University of Pennsylvania. “They started as a way for people to find a particular topic or conversation. They started out useful and utilitaritarian, but have evolved to this notion of being a cultural phenomenon and acting as if you are in the know. So that’s what we do: we hashtag everything now.”
