To want to disown my friend because she overuses hashtags? (Lighthearted)

She's always been one to hashtag the fuck out of everything she does - if she's cooking it's #yummyinmytummy, if she's with her DP it's #myfabbabydaddy and now she's had a baby, every time she posts on social media about an outing with her DS it's #babylurve #mummydiaries!

It makes my teeth itch, I don't know why, but does anyone else have the same reaction?

Of course I might just be a miserable old gimmer...

I hashtag on FB just to piss of my sister. #irritating#saddo

I'd have to cull for 'yummy in my tummy' with or without the hashtag shock

I have a FB friend whose baby pics come with various hashtags including #<his name>stales. (No apostrophe I assume this isn't the done thing in hashtag speak) I always think it looks like the poor boy is growing mould or something.

What are # even for anyway? I get that on twitter it comes up in a search or something or nothing or whatever.

Holy crap, I would keep her for sheer entertainment value.

I've never understood the hashtag thing on Twitter. Do people really look at a page where everyone's used the same term? WHO HAS TIME?

squoosh Wed 31-Aug-16 16:37:23

On Twitter it makes sense if you want to search for comments on an event or a TV show or whatever. But I can't imagine anyone has ever done a search on #yummyinmytummy

Kill her now. #sorrynotsorry

I've defriended someone for excessive use of exclamation marks before so YA definitely NBU.

I have a few of these. They piss me off no end.

One will tag each post with, no joke, about 10 different hashtags #IlovemyBabies #YummyMummy #BabyLove all the fucking time. WHo the fuck cares

The other used to be an intelligent, well educated interesting person. She has now reduced to FB posts about 'having a cup of tea #mummytime'

UnGoogleable Wed 31-Aug-16 16:47:45

Yes so for example, during the Olympics, you could search for #Rio2016 or whatever, or if a big event has happened in the news you could use it to see all comments relating to that.

* But I can't imagine anyone has ever done a search on #yummyinmytummy* exactly. It's not as if someone sits down for a cup of tea and goes 'hmmm I wonder who else has had this experience' and searches for #mummytimeTea then sits and scrolls through everyone's inane self absorbed drivel.... or perhaps they do, who knows!

Is she trying to get traffic to her posts for the purpose of doing a blog? Ie her posts aren't really about showing anyone pictures of her fab baby daddy (sick in mouth), they are just to generate more followers?

I dont have social media accounts but I find that a good way to ensure that you can still be annoying is to just use # in every day conversations whilst chatting face-to-face.
"Oh look mum, it's hashtag raining"
To which dm responds, "Washing's getting hashtag wet"

SantasLittleMonkeyButler Wed 31-Aug-16 16:53:15

I don't understand the point of hashtags either.

I don't use Twitter, but have noticed people doing this all over FB recently.

The most confusing one being #squadgoals.

If anyone has a teenage girl (or is "down with the kids" themselves wink) please feel free to explain!

YANBU. I've recently unfollowed someone on facebook for overuse of hashtags. Irritating, self obsessed nonsense. We don't need to see a picture of your kid covered in cornflakes followed by #breakfast #messymonkey #babyboy #myworld.

ImperialBlether Wed 31-Aug-16 17:13:44

OK so someone please tell me. What happens once #breakfast #messymonkey #babyboy #myworld or whatever is typed? Does someone really click on the link to see who else has used the same hashtag?

That group of friends (squad) is so amazing that it is the type of squad that one should look for when looking to create a squad.
