I saw a commercial the other day. A little girl was looking at a #1 and asked her mom “What does hashtag one mean?” All I could think is, Wow.
Think about the social world we live in today – from a child’s perspective… How would they pronounce #1? What are the implications if the instinctive response is ‘hashtag one’? Who would strive to be that, and what about all of the other # #’s?
