“Happy New Year” #Hashtags! The Must-Use #Hashtags of 2012

Like me, I’m sure your resolution list is packed full, but can I ask that you add one more?   This one is easy – no weight loss or exercise required – simply add hashtags to your Tweets!

The Data Masons’ EDI for Dynamics blog is coming up on its year anniversary and over the course of the last year, I’ve written about the importance of using hashtags within the community. If you’re still new to using #hashtags, here’s a brief recap:

  • The # symbol, called a hashtag, is used to mark keywords or topics in a Tweet. It was created organically by Twitter users as a way to categorize messages. Read “What are Hashtags” for more information.
  • If you use #hashtags then your message is categorized according to each tag, which makes it easier for someone to find information on a specific topic.
  • Hashtags are included within a Tweet’s 140 character limit.

Last year I provided a list of the most used hashtags in the Microsoft Dynamics community, but it’s no surprise that new ones have entered the scene since.  As Microsoft develops new solutions for end users and builds support for its partner network, and as Dynamics community embraces social media opportunities, it’s natural to see the development of new hashtags.

So here you are (drumroll, please), the new hashtags to follow in 2012:

Microsoft Dynamics Community
#MSDYNCOMM: Ok, not “new,” but one of the top hashtags to follow
#MSDYNWINS: Promoting Dynamics customer wins

Microsoft Dynamics AX
#MSDYNAX: Replacing #Axapta and #DynamicsAX
#AX2012: Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 release
#AXUG: Dynamics AX User Group

Microsoft Dynamics GP
#MSDYNGP: Replacing #GreatPlains
#MSDYNGP12: Microsoft Dynamics GP “12” release
#MSDYNGPSDT: Support Debugging Tool
#GPUG: Dynamics GP User Group

Microsoft Dynamics CRM
#CRMUG: Dynamics CRM User Group

Microsoft Dynamics NAV
#MSDYNNAV: Replacing #Navision
#MSDYNNAV7: Microsoft Dynamics NAV “7” release
#ILoveNAV: Crowd sourcing NAV product suggestions
#NAVUG: Dynamics NAV User Group

Convergence, User Group and Partner Events
#CONV12: Convergence 2012 conference in Houston, TX
#GPPC: GP Partner Connections 2012 conference
#AXday1: AXUG Summit DayONE event
#GPUGsummit: GPUG Summit 2012
#GPday1: GPUG Summit DayONE event
#NAVUGForum: NAVUG Forum 2012
#NAVday1: NAVUG Forum DayONE event

While making a resolution to use and follow these hashtags won’t help you lose weight or support your exercise goals, they will keep you better connected to your peers in the Dynamics community.  And I’m all ears should you find other commonly used hashtags or need support in getting other topic-specific hashtags started.

Looking forward to seeing you socially and seeing those hashtags on your Tweets!
