The year 2013 has been the year of hashtags par excellence. This new symbolic phenomena that was first originated in Twitter has rapidly expanded to encroach other popular social media platforms like Facebook and Google Plus. Hashtags are a great way to gather content and users and create a community around a given topic. The power of these symbols besides their sweeping pervasiveness lies in the fact that once they are created nobody controls them and anybody can use them with no restrictions.
