The Facebook-Twitter Mashup Continues

This article is a bit lax on grammar, but gives five “brilliant” reasons why using hashtags in Facebook makes sense.

I’m not sold on the brilliancy, but a couple stood out:

•It will allow companies to create cross-platform solutions and measurement.
•It puts better structure to Facebook and will allow better search-ability.

What we also have to look into is the next claim, that we need to “make sure you have an API – allowing the developer community to tap into hashtags, trending topics, etc. – this is something critical for the success of the service.”

Is it that critical? Stay tuned! In the meantime, go ahead and search for a hashtag on Facebook and see what happens.
