    Well I guess I'd have to commend them on trying to keep up to date with how people apparently communicate these days.
    I'd then tell them that if they ever want a response from me to cut it out.
    I do not do hashtags.

    Remind them they hit puberty almost half a century ago, and it's silly.

    What exactly does hashtagging do?:confused:

    If you rant about something, then add #sickofthis, #stupidcrap or #freakingout, what's the point? We already read your rant and know how you feel. How do the hashtags help? I really want to know.*

    Does anybody ever actually click a hashtag?

    Point out that all the really cool kids are now using complete, grammatically correct sentences with the appropriate punctuation.

    Also, inform them that the Surgeon General has warned hashtags cause testicular cancer.

    Sometimes I hashtag, and I don’t even have a Twitter account.

    Is that how it works?

    Facebook is the only " new " thing I do, and I've been told that FB is now passe. Twitter, Snapchat, Instagram ? I could care less.

    Perhaps the "#" means sharp, like in music: ♯
    Should that be the case, I would suggest to include ♭ in all your answers, so you neutralize the situation

    Yep, i use it rarely only to state something silly. But when you're using instagram, it has its' place.and probably sometimes you might see it on Facebook, it might be that someone shared a post from instagram to Facebook and it leaves the hashtags.

    It's a pound sign. There is no such thing as a hashtag.

    Maybe they're inviting you to play tic tac toe. The payout isn't as good as bingo, though.
