Many would say that tech is an ever-evolving industry. In fact, the sector incorporates so many sectors now that it is hard to keep track.

It is undeniable that tech plays a huge part in our day to day lives, with many of us unable to remember life without our smartphones or even the internet itself, despite both of these being relatively recent inventions.

What exactly are some of the tech habits that our society has embraced?

There are quite a few it seems, but some, from the use of the hashtag, our obsession with social media and increasing dependence on apps to make life easier – are key.

People may not realize it, but these are just three examples of recent tech habits that society has embraced as part of daily life.

USING THE "#" HASHTAG

The hashtag (#) is now such a popular tool of social media and yet is actually quite a recent phenomenon. It is so embedded in current trends that it was added as a word to the Oxford Dictionary in June 2014. Initially used by Twitter in its current form, the hashtag makes it easier for users to search and find a certain topic or subject.

The popularity has spread beyond Twitter and is now used in many other social media platforms. In fact, go to any conference or event, or watch a television show and there will likely be an official hashtag for attendees/viewers to use in order to engage with said event/show on social media.

This has also shown to be common with other sizeable groups of people. Wedding parties often create their own hashtags, for example #MaryandJoeWedding with the hashtag popping up on social media attached to wedding pictures taken by attendees and often the bridge and groom themselves. And let us not forget the infamous selfie to go with that hashtag!
