300 Disability Social Media Hashtags To Help Promote Your Cause Online

Remember those classes in school when students carried on a hushed conversation while the teacher was talking? Did you like that or hate it as a student? And if you were a teacher, did you like it or hate it?

That discussion in the back of the class (or any kind of presentation) is known as backchannel communication. This EDUCAUSE Article tells you the seven things you should know about it.

So what has that got to do with social media hashtags? Lots!

The Backchannel Hashtag Connection

Today, those backchannel communications happen with smartphones and social media (like Twitter, Facebook and Google Plus).

So for example, instead of talking, students (or conference attendees) will tweet their thoughts, concerns or questions.

And they'll identify keywords in their posts with a hashtag. So a keyword like "disability benefits" would become #disabilitybenefits (no space).

A teacher (or conference presenter) who is up to date will have a second screen that displays that electronic backchannel discussion.

Why?

Backchannel students

Simple! That second screen displays the backchannel discussion, clearly identified with hashtags, to tell the presenter what his/her listeners' interests are.

S/he can then re-orient the presentation if required to meet the real needs of the audience.

The background discussion has entered the foreground!

We've all seen a similar thing on TV shows like American Idol, which will ask its viewing audience to vote on something using Twitter hashtags.

For example, the host might say, "Tell us whether YOU think Jimmy's audition should have him advance or go home. Vote using the hashtags #jimmyadvance or #jimmygohome."

The response is instantaneous and the audience is engaged.

You can benefit directly from using this hashtag/backchannel technique... if you've told your story here on Ability-Mission.org with a view to applying for disability grants or benefits. It's easy. Just give it the old one-two!

  1. First of all, learn A LOT more about hashtags from Maria Peagler's "Ultimate Guide To Hashtags" article. Her words will inspire you!
  2. Second, apply everything you've learned to your disability subject using the extensive vetted list in the next section.

Have fun knowing you'll be doing things right!

Disability Social Media Hashtags

Once we've published your story, you're entitled to receive the Disability Help Guide Workbook, which gives you detailed instructions on how to promote your cause.

For example, if you're a suitable candidate for a crowd funding program like GoFundMe.com, promoting your cause on socia media is essential.

To help you do that social media promotion, we've prepared the following list of over 300 hashtags to inspire you.

At the very least they will identify you to others with similar interests and who might be able to help you.
