Facebook Rolling Out Hashtag Support

Via The Verge

Starting today, Facebook users will be able to search for and click on hashtags — as represented by the traditional # symbol — to see a stream of images, posts, and links all tagged with a given phrase.

A move that is late in coming. I'll be interested to see if hashtags are able to really take root in the Facebook ecosystem. As it is right now, I actually see many Facebook users displaying extreme annoyance for hashtags. Some even going as far as calling out people's posts who include hashtags and ridiculing them. I wonder if this is simply bitterness that Facebook didn't support the hashtag, and will therefore fade away now that they are supported, or if there will actually continue to be opposition to the feature.
