Post a pic from the past and remember the good old days!
One of the most popular day of the week hashtags corresponds to Thursday. It's the Throwback Thursday hashtag. There are actually three hashtags that go with this theme: #ThrowbackThursday, #ThursdayThrowback, and #TBT. Since it's one of the most popular hashtags, it's certainly worth the effort to put up content under this theme if you possibly can, and to use all three instead of just one.
It's fairly obvious to see how this hashtag became so popular. While most of social media is about the here and now, it's fun to take a look back into the past every once in a while. The Throwback Thursday hashtags provide the perfect opportunity to do this. The double Th's of this hashtag also makes it incredibly easy to remember.
This group of Thursday hashtags offers a nice variety of uses since they can have a pretty broad interpretation. Two of the more common ways these hashtags get used can be found below.
New Content, Old Photos
It can be a lot of fun going through older photos and picking out your favorites. This is exactly what Thursday Throwback photos are for. It allows you to share photos that otherwise might not make sense on your social media accounts because of the memories they provide. While the photos may be dated, the content is new to your followers and it gives you a chance to tell a memory.
If you have been on social media for a while, another option using the TBT hashtag is to revisit some of your favorite or most popular previous content. This gives you a chance to use the content more than once and let newer social media followers see some of the previous content you posted that they may have missed. It's a great way to get multiple uses out of the content you have created to leverage it to the fullest.
There is no harm in using day based hashtags only occasionally, but to get the most out of them it's best to use them weekly. Using the Throwback hashtags every Thursday will bring consistency to your social media feeds and your followers will begin to anticipate the throwback images you post each Thursday. It can be an excellent way to connect with your followers and ultimately build your social media accounts.
