Hashtags are an integral part of our social media usage. They allow us to easily group similar content and search social media.

The hashtag was widely used in the late 80’s by IRC (Internet Relay Chat) to label groups and topics. Hashtags found wide spread social media use on Twitter in 2007. In 2009 Twitter officially started hyperlinking all hashtags for ease of use. 

Hashtags are super useful for communities and hobbyists to categorize their content. They create highly engaging photo galleries on Instagram and useful streams on Twitter.

I thought it would be an interesting exercise to research the most popular Everyday Carry related hashtags used on social media. Some results were what I expected to find compared to what I’ve seen used commonly. I did find some new hashtags I had not seen before during my research.

The tools I used to find the EDC hashtags are listed below:

These tools are useful for exploring hashtags related to other Everyday Carry items like brands, items, etc. Think Seiko, Emerson, pockettool, custom, or handmade.

Handy Hashtag Tips

  • Don’t overly use hashtags. Using 30 hashtags is annoying for readers and can get you penalized by Instagram. Aim to use around 5-10 hashtags to be most effective.
  • Make sure you vary your hashtags. Your hashtags should match your content. Hashtag stuffing for unrelated content can get you flagged by some social media.
