Is Facebook looking to produce its own version of the Twitter hashtag #fb?

Last week Facebook’s News Feed redesign is the most similar idea to Twitter feeds seen yet.

What makes the # hashtag so important is its valuable advertising monetization. For instance if you are following a hashtag about #lunch, then companies like Olive Garden could sell ads against anyone who searches for that hashtag, putting their restaurant promoted tweet in front of everyone. You know that’s how its done right?

Facebook can’t do that yet, but Graph Search by Facebook may be the start of making that connection through Friend Graph, essentially providing a new way to bring ads to users.

Wall Street Journal first reported the new trend and Mike Issac has verified this next move in the future plans of Facebook.
