Dawn of the #Hashtag

Dawn of the #Hashtag

Published 21 May 2019 by Victor Koaho

Victor Koaho, IMC (Integrated Marketing Communications) Lead at The MediaShop

Modern technology is really something to marvel at, it brings a multitude of people into a conversation in an instant. People who don’t even know each other and have never met, end up having long debates and arguments on issues affecting them and society at large across various platforms.

In some instances social media has mobilised people across the globe against forms of societal ill, with some of the most famous social revolutions including #bringbackourgirls and #blacklives matter.
