This step from Facebook means that hashtags could now be a lot more abundant and easier to integrate.

Facebook describes hashtags as a way to “turn topics and phrases into clickable links in posts on your personal timeline or your Page, and help people find posts about topics they’re interested in.” For example, Facebook says, write a post along with an associated hashtag phrase, such as “I walked up so many hills today! #SanFrancisco.”
