Re: Who's still using hashtags? Or are they a thing of the past?

Yes they are still effective. It does depend on which social media platform you are on. Facebook is not good for using hashtags. Twitter and Instagram are great for using hashtags.

It's probably best to speak with a (patent) lawyer, not an internet marketing forum. Have you gotten a provisional patent on your idea? Is it unique?
