I just saw on Instagram that someone created a hashtag for their son's fifth birthday, something like #happybirthdaysteverogers
The audience for this type of hashtag seems infinitesimal to me. So why even do it? Unless I am totally not getting the varied possible uses of a hashtag. Is it a legacy thing? That one day after junior grows up that he'll search himself on teh internets and be overtaken by such emotion that he will cherish the memories he never had?
I am not an Interwebs luddite. I post pictures of my family all the time. But to me, creating a hashtag for a young boy's birthday seems inappropriate. I know this is a minor thing, and probably daddy was thinking it was cute thing. But the reality is, it's redundant, you don't need to create a hashtag for something as obvious a young boy's birthday, the pic will attract the audience you want.
