Social media giant Facebook has now added hashtag support to it's website.

It appears the trend (no pun intended) is catching on, with Twitter, Instagram (which is owned by Facebook), Vine and more already having hashtag functions.

"Starting today, hashtags will be clickable on Facebook. Similar to other services like Instagram, Twitter, Tumblr, or Pinterest, hashtags on Facebook allow you to add context to a post or indicate that it is part of a larger discussion. When you click on a hashtag in Facebook, you’ll see a feed of what other people and Pages are saying about that event or topic."

the company wrote in a blog post.

To create a hashtag, just use the # symbol and start typing your word; Facebook will do the rest.
