U&CF Hashtags for Social Media

A preliminary list of social media hashtags suggested for urban and community forestry, interface forestry, and conservation education.

A hashtag is a keyword phrase used in Twitter conversations that is preceded by a pound (#) sign and written without spaces.  The primary purpose of a hashtag is to bring conversations on the same topic into a single thread to make it convenient for information consumers to view and compare ideas.  It effectively creates a community online centered on the hashtag’s definition or use [].

Common hashtags should be used as appropriate throughout your social media work including: Twitter, Google+, Instagram, Facebook, and blogs.

Updated in October 2013 to include additional environmental hashtags that are in common use.
