#YOU is an interesting exercise in defining what is important
With hashtags being mainstream and so prolific in social media, I would venture to say most people have at least followed a trending topic with a hashtag. You have seen the famous one #tbt (#throwbackthursday) or, how about the social media campaign sweeping the nation #icebucketchallenge for the ALS Association? Even if you don't get into the "hashtag craze" on social media, consider this for one moment: Why would you ever create your OWN hashtag? What one or two words define and represent YOU?
Why this is important: Hashtags and keywords have become important filters to search for trends and find things across social media. Choosing a personal hashtag is an interesting process of self-discovery, and sorting out your work/life balance.
