To Tag or Not to Tag? Hashtags, Facebook, & Your Satire Site Fan Page

Many satirists not only have a website, but also a fan page on Facebook. 

For some, using hashtags might seem a no-brainer for increasing the reach of their fan page; and thus, ultimately, of their site.

But things are not necessarily so simple.

One important article on the issue says:

The generic data indicates one thing – that hashtags are not overly useful – individual results, as they say, may vary. Conduct your own experiments and see what works for you.


Another article is more positive, and offers various forms of advice.

Although, it appears to be undated?

So, it’s not clear if it is as up-to-date as the first article linked to in this post.

I administer the Glossy News Facebook page, and I’m going to experiment with cutting out hashtags completely until the end of the year.

I’ll let you know how I get on.

In the meantime, feel free to like our page!
