What are some best practices for using hashtags?

You may have noticed a hashtag call-out on some book pages recently. This is to help you connect with authors and publishers when talking about a book you’ve requested, read/listened to, and reviewed.

When using hashtags to talk about books on social media, we recommend a few best practices. 

  1. Be sure to correctly spell and capitalize the book’s title. We suggest double-checking this on the book’s NetGalley title page before creating your own hashtags. 
  2. Tag the author's name, too! 
  3. We recommend sticking to no more than 2-3 hashtags per post.
  4. Don't forget to tag #NetGalley to connect with other readers of influence.
