Embracing easier search and public conversations, Facebook announced on Wednesday that it was adding clickable hashtags. As with Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr or Pinterest, when you click on a hashtag you'll see what other people and pages are saying about the same topic.
In a blog post on its website, Facebook said that until now, there "has not been a simple way to see the larger view of what's happening or what people are talking about." The launch today aims to "surface some of the interesting discussions people are having about public events, people and topics."

Users will also now be able to search for a specific hashtag from the search bar. Users can also compose posts from the hashtag feed and search results. And to integrate its Instagram acquisition, Facebook is allowing users to click on hashtags that originate from other services.
