On August 23, 2007, Chris Messina introduced the idea of the hashtag as a way to create group unity and global conversations around a specific topic. This one idea from a Silicon Valley product designer blossomed into the social media hashtag we know and love today.
Hashtags are now universal and help connect us with others participating in the same cause, event or topic of conversation. For a regional event like Joedance, hashtags can help in many ways! So, in case you haven’t heard, we’d like to introduce you to two hashtags that are near and dear to Joedance.
We’ve already rolled out our 10th anniversary hashtag! Tag all of your photos with #JoedanceTurns10 to help us celebrate and commemorate.
Inspired by the ever popular #KeepPounding hashtag, our creative team developed #KeepFilmingNC as a way to support and promote regional filmmakers. Since our 2019 Joedance Film Festival will include North & South Carolina filmmakers, we wanted to come up with a way to show our support regionally and outside of the festival.
With all of the hashtag excitement, we’re happy to announce that we’re bringing back the Joedance Twitter account to make the most of our creative hashtags. You can follow us @joedancefilm.
