Where To Use Hashtags

Confused about how hashtags should be used across your social media accounts? Read this easy cheat sheet:

On Twitter: You can pepper your tweet with hashtags, or tag them on at the beginning or end of your post.

Ex: Honey #Badger Don’t Care!  #honeybadger #meme #dontcare

On Pinterest:  Before pinning, after typing in your image description, paste in some hashtags.  They will help your image appear more frequently in search results.

Ex: This painting is from my newest series, “You have like all over your Facebook”…. I’d love some feedback on that blue tone.  Should I glaze it with   sap green?  #myart #painting #contemporaryart #social #abstractart

On Instagram: Since the first comment shows in the feed under the picture, first post a comment with the real description of your image.  Then, add a separate comment with all your hashtags.  Get creative with them.  You can hashtag your name, medium, location, style, anything that describes your image.  You can also get funny with your tags or use simple ones.  Experiment, and see which ones get you the best responses.

Ex:  #follow @art__fair  #art #contest #beautiful #paint #mixedmedia #artist #woah #myart #artgallery #love #happy

*Hey, did you know we’re having an Instagram contest? Details here.


*Watch how other people are tagging their pictures and if you see tags that relate to your image, try them out.

*You’re only allowed 30 tags per image on Instagram, so if you keep trying to post them and they aren’t showing up, try again after deleting a few hashtags.
