An informal proposal regarding Catholic hashtags
For those who don’t know what a hashtag is….read this.
It’s been great seeing the #cathmedia hashtag take off in such a short time. Today, I saw a tweet exchange on #cathmedia that highlights a growing problem. Someone posted a tweet about a topic that another tweeter didn’t think was appropriate for that hashtag (sorry, but I don’t feel the content of the tweets are relevant here). There was some back and forth on what constitutes #cathmedia, and it led nowhere.
Due to the openness of Twitter, I don’t think it’s possible to ‘police’ hashtags, but I do think it might be worthwhile to propose some new ones that may be more specific to the content and easier for people to track.
Here are my suggestions… and that’s all they are – suggestions. I’m very interested in feedback on this, because I do think there needs to be some sort of agreement for it to have much effect.
#CathNews – News links or announcements.
#CathBlog – Blog posts.
#CathTech – Technology usage. I see this as a good one to ask tech questions on. Also to share cool new technology finds.
#CathPic – Pictures, images, slideshows…think visual.
#CathPod – Podcasts.
#CathVid – Video.
#CathMedia – I know it was created to handle media production/promotion…but has it turned into something more?
