    ........................FFFFFFFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU!!!!!!!!!!! NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO!!!!!!!!!!!! Please, for the love of all that is good and great in this world, NO! I friggin hate those dadgum annoying hashtags! When looking at a post, I want to see:

    "We went on a family vacation to disney and had a great time."

    Not:

    "We went on a #disneyfamilyvacation and had a #greattime. #awesomevacation"

    Hashtags are so dang annoying!!! Write like an educated human being, or at least a somewhat educated human being :p
