Join with us for International Female Ride Day©, the first Saturday in May each year and let your #hashtags loose. Let the world see what women motorcycle riders are doing on the world’s only and largest synchronized women’s ride day – real time!
The #hashtag is part of our daily language now and has become integral to the way we search and communicate online. Though it started with Twitter, it’s used for searching topics no matter what platform – Instagram, Facebook, Twitter etc. Hashtags allow us to organize content and track discussion topics based on those hash tagged keywords. Plus by clicking on a #hashtag you can view all the posts that mention the subject – in real time.
So for International Female Ride Day let’s rock the web with our hashtags! Using those listed here will also allow others to find and observe the magnitude of events, activities and of course what YOU’LL be sharing with us as you “JUST RIDE!”.
Let’s make this the greatest, loudest (safest) #IFRD ever!
Use one, use two, and rotate:
The hashtag’s widespread use began with Twitter but extended to other social media platforms. In 2007, developer Chris Messina in a tweet, suggested that Twitter begin grouping topics using the hash symbol. Twitter initially rejected the idea. But in October 2007, citizen journalists began using the hashtag #SanDiegoFire, at Messina’s suggestion, to tweet updates on a series of forest fires in San Diego. The practice of hash-tagging took off; now users and brands employ hashtags to cover serious political events and entertainment topics (#Madonna) alike.
