Today, all that has changed. What once seemed to be an insignificant symbol on a keypad has become one of the most important symbols of social networking sites. Come to think of it, something similar happened to our beloved “@ sign”. Did anyone really know what it was called before the advent of personal E-mail addresses?
The hashtag has earned its popularity thanks to Twitter, where it was first proposed by Chris Messina in 2007 as a system to easily search for groups and topics of similar interest:
how do you feel about using # (pound) for groups. As in #barcamp [msg]?

Nowadays, we see hashtags used everywhere, to invite people to comment or discuss an event, a television show and much more. The use of hashtags on Twitter has since expanded to the Instagram and Facebook media sites.
We here at Holimites came up with this idea:
“Why not group all the skiers and snow enthusiasts on the Dolomites under a single hashtag?”
So, if you’re skiing or spending a relaxing vacation among the Dolomite spires this winter, join us on any social media network by using the #dolomitesski hashtag and share your thoughts with the community.
Here’s a first set of pictures taken by our friends and us as a starter:
