The World of Day to Day Hashtags #everydayallday

Jessie Osterman and Lauren Branagh

    Whether you’re an Instagram addict, Twitter queen, or Facebook fiend, you are no stranger to the #hashtag. Arguably, the most popular hashtags are used on the daily, literally depending on the day of the week. Most times, these hashtags are accompanied by a picture of sorts, which serves to highlight the hashtag’s meaning. Here’s the lowdown of the most popular hashtags for each day, and how you can use them to spice up your social media life.

Monday: #ManCandyMonday


This is undoubtedly, one of the greatest creations of the hashtag world. Simple and beautiful, all one needs to do is find a glorious picture of a local eye candy or one of Hollywoods most attractive men, possibly add a filter (please don’t), and upload it to the media site of your choice. Twitter and Instagram seem to flood with images of shirtless bachelors every Monday, so be sure to get your’s up quick!

others: #MileyMonday, #ManicureMonday


Tuesday: #TransformationTuesday


If you have a great #ThrowbackThursday pic, but don’t feel like competing with the plethora of old baby photos that fill your feed on Thursdays, this hashtag is for you. It will allow you to show off your adorable awkwardness in a new and exciting way. Make sure to pair the pic your little self with a dubbed version from the present to emphasize how much (or how little) your swag has changed with age. The only downside is, if you are planning to recreate a picture, you may have to go to great lengths to get it close to the original. If you are willing to put in the work, it will definitely come out FAB. These posts are most popular on instagram, so refrain from Facebook or Twitter, as more people will see your pic on their instafeed.

Wednesday: #WeirdGuyWednedsay


Time to break out all the crazy, ugly, unusual, and freaky pics you have of your best bros. Go all out on this one by digging up those Snapchat screenshots you have stocked up in a secret folder. Then, send them into cyberspace and allow all those active internet users to bask in their glory. Both Twitter and Instagram are popular outlets for these hilarious snaps, so feel free to choose which you use. BUT: Beware! Publicising an extremely distasteful photo could have consequences, so use your better judgement before letting the beast loose on social media sites.

Thursday: #ThrowbackThursday


You can never go wrong with a classic. Most often posted on Instagram, the good old #tbt is always appreciated when used properly. However, make sure when you throw it back, you are actually throwing it back to the somewhat distant past. Don’t post a picture from last weekend because most likely, people have recently seen it on other sites like Twitter or Facebook and posting it again is just a bit overwhelming. It’s okay to use photos from a month or two ago, because the hype from you freshly posting pictures has probably died down and it is safe to call it the past. When in doubt, adorable baby and toddler pics are always a hit!


others: #Thursdate


Friday: #TGIF (Thank God its Friday)

Now, #TGIF is a very versatile hashtag that can be posted on its own (like in a tweet or Facebook status) or along with a picture showing what you may be doing that day or your joy that the school week is over. Anyone can use this hashtag because it will make those who read it instantly be filled with excitement of the thought of the approaching weekend.

Saturday: #Caturday

Cat lovers, this one is for you. Make your fluffy feline an internet star by capturing their beauty and grace in a well shot Instagram, or post a candid selfie of you and your cat on twitter to show how great of homies you two are. Maybe try out a #catstache in your glamorshot to spice up your selfies. Instagram would be a prime place to post, but Twitter and Facebook are alright as well.

Sunday: #SelfieSunday


All hail the ever superb selfie. Anywhere is perfect to post one of these beauties. Sunday is perfect for you to start off the week with a freshly shared snapshot of you and your fabulousness. You can keep it classic and go with the facefront camera selfie, or switch it up and take an old school mirror pic. With so many ways to take a picture of yourself and your awesomeness, the possibilities are endless. Just make sure to keep it classy, as always.
