    "Memphis, Y U Not Use Hashtags" by: Aaron Prather "Memphis, Y U Not Use Hashtags" by: Aaron Prather Presentation Transcript

    • Memphis, Y U Not Use Hashtags?
    • What is a Hashtag?
      • Hashtags are a community-driven convention for adding additional context and metadata to your tweets. They're like tags on Flickr, only added inline to your post. You create a hashtag simply by prefixing a word with a hash symbol: #hashtag .
    • What is a Hashtag?
      • Hashtags were developed as a means to create “groupings” on Twitter, without having to change the basic service.
    • How they are used?
      • They’re not the most beautiful things ever, but they’re pretty easy to use.
    • Good Old #FollowFriday #FF
    • Can be used for any event
    • #IranElection of 2009
    • #Egypt in 2011
    • The Power of Hashtag
      • Allows “events” to be tracked from a single source.
      • Speeds up information flow.
      • Allows more people to add to the story.
    • The Boston “Snowpocalypse” Experiment
      • Andrew Phillips at WBUR in Boston used the hashtag #ViewFromMyWindow to get listeners’ tweets about the storm.
      • He received simple photos to serious issues and problems that needed to be address.
      • Other media outlets and government agencies started to monitor the hashtag to get info and address those problems.
      • Phillips is up for a Pulitzer.
    • The Memphis Problem Send your photos and problems to the Commercial Appeal! No to us! We want that!
    • So then…. WHAT PROBLEM?!?!
    • Information Is Golden
      • If all of the information is scattered among numerous sources, we do not have a complete picture.
    • Have all outlets tap into and ADD to a single Source!
      • Commercial Appeal, WREG, WMC, FOX13, etc. can use and ADD to the Hashtag Stream.
      • Citizens and Government can use and add to the Hashtag Stream.
      • A Mississippi River of Information!
    • Memphis and Snow
      • Would have been nice to know where the problem roads were?
      • Why is this road/bridge “salted”, but three blocks down it isn’t?
      • Anyone open?
    • What could we fix with Hashtags?
      • #memtraffic
      • #mempothole
      • #memsnow
      • #princemongo
    • What it will take
      • COMMUNITY!!!
      • This has to come from the ground up and the others will follow.
      • ReTweets and Follow Ups
    • This will make Memphis better!
    • So Let’s Make It Happen
    • Thanks for Your Time
