Facebook defines #Tags (Hashtags) as click-able links in a user’s personal Timeline or page post which are actually topics and phrases about one’s interest. 

When you click on a hashtag, you come across news feeds related to the topic by using the search bar at the top of any page on Facebook.

However who can see your hashtag actually depending on where you have posted the topic. 

Facebook says that if you share a post with a hashtag with your friends, only “these friends” connected with your FB account can all see the same. If you post a hashtag on a public domain, say on a FB page anyone who clicks that hashtag can see your post in that feed.

The idea was to bring conversations about public events, people and related topics to the forefront to trigger a conversational trend using the hashtag mentions on profile posts, fan page posts, group posts, event posts & all comments across Facebook.

It is important to note that hashtags are like a simple form of organization and how often a hashtag is used or clicked relates to its popularity factor. Therefore to find if a hashtag is trending, checkout sites like www.hashtags.org and www.hashtagify.me

Facebook is tracking hashtags that people are using so that the news feeds are available for a particular hashtag even if the same has not been used by an FB user. In fact Facebook is making hashtags searchable irrespective of their origin & trending on other social networking platforms like Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, Tumblr & Google+. Another notable aspect is the ability to add hashtags on Facebook ads thus giving these advertisements the virality edge.
