So guys… Everyone I know keeps calling this “#” a Hashtag. Isn’t a pound? Also if I am right. Why is it being called a Hashtag! Are they to lazy to remember pound?
actually both are wrong and right, they’re wrong in that the # is just the “hash” symbol, they’re right in that it’s a hashtag in social networking and its was the pound sign on telephones…ect , it has other uses/names as well.
google them for more info:)
also link, enjoy;)
Thanks for the info. I’m going to be a pain in the **** and call it a pound!
I just grew up with it being called a pound. But thanks again for the info. #Pound
Well, programmers calls it sharp.“C#”
In the UK “£” is what we would call a pound.
I call it a hash, but my friend who is a pianist calls it ‘sharp’ although the ‘sharp’ symbol is different.
♯ - sharp
I’m surprised no one said ‘number sign’ yet or ‘naughts’ hehe
Hmm… I like the sound of that!
