    Please this has much of a impact as twitters hashtags except twitter is more simple where as facebook is more detailed and you need to spend more time looking at stuff.

    hashtags aren't the way to make something viral in my opinion I just see them as something people use because they just can not because its gonna be come viral or anything like that.

    Plus a company that posts this after they did "research" is worthless they just aren't accurate as they dont account for anything they cant see facebooks database or anything like that to see what real impact there is on hashtags.
