I have a question for some of you chicks.I'm not the sharpest Knife in the Drawer but,can anyone explain to me what a #hashtag means?The reason for asking is ,where  I'm new to computers,actually this is my first computer and I was just wondering what exactly it meant?

Hashtags

(on social-networking websites) a word or phrase preceded by a hash mark (#), used within a message to identify a keyword or topic of interest and facilitate a search for it:
The hashtag #sandiegofire was used to help coordinate an emergency response to the fire.

Grabbed that from dictionary.com

Its basically a way to categorize social media (ie Twitter) messages into groups. Say you wanted to look for tweets related to spring you would search #spring and be able to see all the tweets everyone tweeted with that hash tag

Hope that helped explain it a bit :)
