    Facebook Hashtags - How to find out the viral interaction and engagement?


    Hello,

    I would like to know if there's a way of finding out how many (or the percentage) of all Reach and Engagement that using hashtags within a status has generated. For example, a recent post gained a reach of 689 and an engagement rate of 69 (Likes/Comments/Shares), although I'm currently unaware of how many of these Likes etc. have came from users that were reached from using the hashtags (e.g. people that haven't previously Liked the page).

    Thanks!

    According to a recent study by EdgeRank Checker, however, hashtags don't appear to be increasing brands' reach or engagement on Facebook. EdgeRank Checker is an online tool that allows you to check your Facebook Page's EdgeRank, or how likely Facebook is to spread your Page's posts.

    You should really go through what EdgeRank's study says about use of Facebook hashtags. In short, they aren't working too well for brands - the use of hashtags is either too much or too less on the page posts.
    The posts with hashtags are actually not reaching out to too many people, as users tend to click on the hashtag more than they tend to click on the page and its other posts.
    If brands focused on creating unique hashtags for themselves, then only their posts would show up when someone clicks on the hashtag, increasing the reach of their posts.
    Maybe the study had been done sometime ago, I do come across alot of users who use way too many hashtags in their posts; resulting in their post not reaching out to the right people.
