The Best Caribbean Hashtags of 2015
A hashtag is simply a way for people to search for tweets (or posts on Instagram and Facebook) that have a common topic. Whether you’re using the hashtag, or become one — it’s the best way to get noticed on social media.
People from all different cultures and backgrounds are using hashtags to build community online, to galvanize support for a cause, and to tell stories on their own terms.
So often cultures are represented through a very one-dimensional lens in the mainstream media. Social media has placed some of the power to control the narrative and tell authentic stories back into the hands of people without big budgets and other resources.
2015 was the year of the Caribbean hashtag takeover and it was grand. Everything from #growingupcaribbean to #christmaswithcaribbeanfamilies is sure to give you a laugh and remind you that our experience is unique and collective at the same time.
Here are the 5 best Caribbean hashtags of 2015:
