You may have seen them used in advertising, or social media and wondered about what they are and what they do. Simply stated, a # before a string of letters makes that string “searchable” on social media. The more people use the same hashtag, the more public attention it receives.
March 8-16 is National Catholic Sisters Week- better known as #NCSW! If you use social media (primarily Twitter), look for #MissionMonday, #TransformationTuesday, #WCW (Woman Crush Wednesday),#TBT (Throwback Thursday), #FF (Follow Friday), #SisterSelfie, and #ShoutOut. These are all Hashtags that Congregations of Consecrated Women will be using to promote Catholic Sisters and the special week dedicated to them and all of their good works. It doesn’t really do anything, it just shines a light that keeps getting brighter with every #.
