Social networking site Facebook has announced plans to introduce clickable hashtags for users.

The tool is already widely used on other media, such as micro-blogging site Twitter, so users can find out what others are discussing.

Facebook users have long adopted the hashtag, often using it as an addition to comments and status updates.

But they will now be able to click on the hashtagged words as a search term and view a feed of discussions relating to that topic.

In a post for the company, Facebook’s Greg Lindley said: ‘To date, there has not been a simple way to see the larger view of what’s happening or what people are talking about.

‘To bring these conversations more to the forefront, we will be rolling out a series of features that surface some of the interesting discussions people are having about public events, people, and topics.

‘As a first step, we are beginning to roll out hashtags on Facebook.’
