What is a hashtag?

A hashtag is label that helps people interested in a particular topic to quickly search for that topic in social media. It lets people follow what others are saying about a particular topic, in this case the Community Lottery.
You can use #CommunityLottery on both Facebook and Twitter, just remember not to use spaces when you type it.
