Some of my posts have tags, and I actually started applying them a long time ago (long before the Great Hiatus, even.) Way back when, I think they pointed to Technorati, which ought to give you an idea of how long I’ve been doing it. Then they pointed to Delicious. Considering both of those sites are basically undead, I figure I ought to point them somewhere else. Linking them to Twitter, Facebook, or Google+ searches doesn’t feel quite right either, though. All of those sites “silo” their searches. The world seems to have settled on hashtagging, so I’m formatting the tags that way, now.
Are there any general purpose search engines (or heck, even somewhat user-friendly SemWeb engines) that make use of hashtags in a less, well, selfish fashion?
