Facebook users will be able to include hashtags in their posts and then watch them become clickable. When a hashtag is included in a post, clicking on it will pop out a feed that aggregates others posts that have been tagged with the same phrase.
After last year Apple vs Samsung case, I wonder if social platforms should be able to copyright their exclusive features. Would this turn into a patent war among #socmed giants (and dwarfs)?

Having the same features on multiple social media platforms will make them a whole lot easier to use and more understandable . And maybe now, putting your tweets or instagram pics (completed with hashtags) on facebook, may start looking less ridiculous.
Good point Petra.
So, what is your answer? Should Twitter have copyrighted the #?
