I am irrationally angry because I’ve just realized that some random chick used my wedding hashtag over the weekend. She posted like 6 pictures of her going to a wedding but since shes the only one who used it, i’m assuming it was not the correct hashtag for the wedding (that or they were just really not pushing their hashtag)
I am soooo into our hashtag, my Fiance is a social media manager by trade and I even bought the URL that goes with the hashtag and now she’s clogged up my feed.
Rant over. Plus side the weddings 8 months away so i will just have to post lots of really good pics between now and then and hope no one scrolls that far down.
Anybody else having hashtag problems?

charlestonmorgan: maybe it was an accident. You can’t expect to control other people on social media. Just keep publishing good content.

kinda lame but it happens. comment and say omg same wedding as ours, maybe we’re twins. maybe she will see her wrong hashtag and correct it.

charlestonmorgan: One thing with hashtags is that they’re not proprietary or regulated. Once your wedding comes around, the API might not even pick up the 6 photos because they’re 8 months old.
I don’t think that my husband and I are or will ever be the only ones to use the hashtag #osullywed but it certainly helped to have it that weekend to gather and see what was taken.

🙂 I know hashtags are public domain. guess it just surprised me that they popped up out of nowhere! Luckily she didn’t get very many likes so I think we can bump her on out of there 😉

charlestonmorgan: If your wedding is in April 2015, I wouldn’t be too concerned about the hashtag. Her pictures will most likely get buried by the pictures from your guests. I love our hashtag, but only after I chose it did I realize that my FI’s SIL used something similar as her gamer tag on Xbox. At first I was kind of bummed…until I realized it literally did not even matter. Don’t be too concerned. Those who are savvy enough to use the hashtag will also be savvy enough to not get confused.
