Introducing Hashtags

Hashtags

helps you find interesting projects that people you follow might share, but what about finding something that isn’t shared from your followers? We have had a search option since the beginning of Clowdy but that requires you to have a specific purpose in mind, like “I want to find a video by Eben Mccue. On Clowdy we want an element of serendipity when you have a vague idea of what you want. This is where Hashtags rule.

Make finding content easier with the hashtag

Now the way an artist describes their projects will be improved with Hashtags. The best practice will be to use descriptive keywords on perhaps the genre of the project, the location it was recorded, the technique used on the project, or just something for fun. Any hashtags will aid discovery.

We will then be showing the most popular tags to users on their Home, in suggestion e-mails and from suggestions in searches. We will be gradually rolling out these Hashtag features over the next two weeks. Finding new projects will never have been so fun!

Stuart Logan
The CEO of Twine. Follow him on Twine and on Twitter @stuartlogan – As the Big Boss, Stuart spends his days in a large leather armchair, staring out over the Manchester skyline while smoking a cigar and plotting world domination. (He doesn’t really). Originally from Salisbury, UK, he studied computer science at Manchester University but was always keen to break into the exciting world of start-ups, and was involved in a number of ventures before finalising his plans for Twine. When not wearing his chief executive hat (metaphorically speaking) he enjoys harbouring unrealistic expectations for Manchester United’s future success and live music.
