Hashtags are coming to Facebook

Just like Twitter, Instagram and Google+, Facebook will launch hashtags in the coming weeks to all users.

Hashtags will be both clickable and searchable, according to Mashable.

(You might recognize them already on Facebook, although they currently don’t do anything. They are a “#” followed by a word or phrase, like #Royals, #Summer, #KC)

In addition to search results, Facebookers are expected to be allowed to write a message directly from the hashtag search results.

A small percent of Facebook users had the feature rolled out on Wednesday. While an official timeline hasn’t been made public by the social site, it’s expected in “coming weeks.”
