#followedbythepoundsign

We’ve become a society of hashtags.  We can label and post with #.  We can use it on Twitter and Pinterest and Instagram.

But if my memory serves me correctly [maybe I’m aging myself] wasn’t this # once referred to as the pound sign?   Once you reached the customer service number, you needed to listen to a series of instructions – and when all else failed you pushed the pound sign.   Sorry…I don’t know that extension…. pound sign.   I ordered the $500 exercise equipment only to return it two weeks later – pound sign.    Long distance phone calls on hold…..operator instructs you to push – pound.   That  meant, next months phone bill would highlight the phone call to Italy, costing you $75 – because you pushed – pound.

I’m one of many now hashtagging my way through post and tweets.

For instance…. when you post something on Facebook or Twitter…. why not hashtag this
