The use of local hashtags on platforms like Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn and yes even Facebook can be a great way to extend the local outreach of your social media posts. We are fortunate here in Howard County to have a great list of local hashtags categorized by HoCoBlogs. Here is a listing for local arts, events and entertainment posts.

If you are not using local hashtags to promote your posts you may be missing out on local outreach opportunities. If you want more information be sure to reach out to ScottE Software for your social media needs.

I hope everyone has a wonderful Monday.
