Let’s have a craft beer hashtag talk.

I use various social media platforms to connect with people about all things beer and gaming related. I, like almost every single person on the interwebz, am accustomed to using hash tags.

I use them on my Instagram and Twitter frequently, but with tact. I try to keep them to a minimum as too many just looks sloppy and/or starved for attention.

When I blog, I do the same. It’s understandable to use a few more than 2 or 3 for a written blog. It’s also why I’ve been keeping them to a minimum as of late.

BUT! Regardless of wild hashtag use, you have to keep them specific. I bring this up because I like to peruse craft beer giveaways on Instagram and then share them and comment. It’s just good etiquette for posting.

Why do I say this? Because if you’re using #beergiveaway, actually be trying to give away the beer. It’s why searching for that specific tag brings up countless unrelated posts that use the tag, but actually just turn out to be pictures of people’s beer.

Damn them and their teases of free beer. I don’t want to look at it, I want to drink it!
