Hashtags are everywhere. In just a few years they’ve been heavily incorporated into network TV shows, commercials, movie promotions, magazine ads and, amazingly enough, for many folks they’re even part of their everyday vernacular (albeit usually with a touch of irony).

This infographic from The Huffington Post outlines the basics and best practices for optimum hashtag use.
