Facebook to Introduce Hashtags

Facebook will soon be hashtag bound according to The Wall Street Journal. Facebook is tearing a page out of Twitter’s playbook and throwing it back in the company’s face, (or would that be beak) possibly reaching into their corporate pocket, siphoning off some of their advertising revenue.

Facebook plans to launch its own Linkify’d version of the hashtag, allowing users to connect common themes and trending topics around the social network by adding the simple hashtag symbol to a status update.
