How should I tag someone in social media?

Using hashtags and tags allows you to instantly connect with users and companies.  Tagging someone ensures your post is linked directly to their account, and the users and companies get a notification that they’ve been mentioned. It’s a great way to gain traction and build brand awareness.

  • Add a “via @username” to the end of stories you share. Most often, the “via” references the author who wrote the story or the site that published it.
  • Add a “HT @username” to credit those who turned you onto a story or idea. HT is shorthand for “hat tip,” the practice of tipping one’s hat toward another person to say thanks.
