What are lists you ask? Think of lists as a pocket full of related tags. They allow for organization and a central place to save all of your favorite tags. There is no right or wrong kind of list as long as it makes sense to you. Here’s an example of what possible lists are:</p> <div class="post_body"> <p><strong>Nike Brand Tags</strong></p> <ul><li>#justdoit</li> <li>#nike</li> <li>#fuelband</li> </ul><p><strong>ABC Primetime Shows</strong></p> <ul><li>#scandal</li> <li>#greysanatomy</li> <li>#revenge</li> <li>even tags associated with a certain show, eg. #huckstoolbox (from scandal)</li> </ul><p>What makes lists unique is the ability to view posts associated with all tags in the list as opposed to looking up one tag at a time. You can view your lists in the side nav or on your profile page.</p> <div class="post_body"><img alt="image" src="http://hshtags.com/webroot/img/blog/lists_img.png"/> </div> <div class="post_body"> <p><span>What kinds of lists are you creating? Tweet them at us </span><a href="https://twitter.com/TheHshtagsTeam" title="@thehshtagsteam">@thehshtagsteam</a><span>. If we receive 50 lists, we will feature them in ‘Featured Lists’, a new section of our site to come.</span></p> <p>As always, let us know how we’re doing at <a href="mailto:the.team@hshtags.com" title="the.team@hshtags.com" target="_blank">the.team@hshtags.com</a> .

Why? Because I was intrigued at the concept of being able to track the conversation around the show especially during the premiere or finale. It’s sometimes entertaining yet can be annoying, especially if some mean person decides to spill spoilers. Regardless, it added to the experience so I kept at it.</p> <p class="grid-breaking-override"><strong><span>#greysanatomy</span></strong><em> (Twitter stream during the Season 10 premiere of Grey’s Anatomy)</em></p> <div><strong><strong><img alt="image" src="http://media.tumblr.com/d37661e8b24c546c51ee64883d02990e/tumblr_inline_mu20pnUB251s8g4v5.png"/></strong></strong></div> <p>What made this possible and what made it easy? Hashtags. Some people may stop reading by this point because they despise hashtags and that’s ok. <em>They are so overused, misused and abused that by this point I’d prefer not to participate in any hashtags debate.</em> But the fact still remains that they exist, they are a powerful marketing tool and an even more powerful conversation tool within the social sphere.</p> <p>Now with regards to conversations around TV shows, they are an exciting and liberating way to share thoughts and opinions publicly and allowing others to respond. It’s always so interesting to see what someone else (who is not my friend) thinks of the show; their own personal reactions and opinions. Now sometimes I admit it’s distracting so I tend to open Twitter or Facebook in the commercial breaks but otherwise, I’m hooked.</p> <br/><br/><p><strong>Kim Goulbourne</strong><br/>CEO & Founder</p> </div>http://blog.hshtags.com/post/62917324581http://blog.hshtags.com/post/62917324581Wed, 02 Oct 2013 14:32:00 -0400tvpremieresfinalesepisodessocialstreamsThe Anatomy of a Branded Hashtag Hijacking<a href="http://digiday.com/brands/branded-hashtag-hijacking/">The Anatomy of a Branded Hashtag Hijacking</a>: <p>"A breakdown of how Tide’s #cleanwins hashtag campaign very quickly evolved, or rather devolved, after it launched."</p> <p><span>Creating branded hashtags can either end up being a success or a complete mess.
