HashAtIt.com Takes On Hashtag Search
A new, Los Angeles startup, HashAtIt.com has launched this morning, offering up a search engine specifically for searching for hashtag content. According to HashAtIt.com, which calls itself "The Social Search Engine", it is offering up an online search engine which lets users search content from Facebook, Twitter,Instagram, and Pinterest all in a single search, all keyed off popular hashtags--those #keywords which are popular in social media for organizing messages, comments, photos, and video. The company said it was founded by Laurie Paolone, who was formerly the CIO of MagnaFlow. HashItIt.com's website creates Pinterest-like results pages which pull content from across all or just one of those social services.
