Web Exclusive: Facebook joins #Hashtag revolution

Posted: Updated:

(CNN/CBS) -  Hashtags are coming to Facebook.  This is to help users better surface conversations.  The social network wants to make it easier for users to find content already on Facebook and functional hashtags are the first step.  According to Facebook, many users already post hashtags anyway.  Hashtags will be both clickable and searchable.

Parents, if it seems Lego figures are getting angrier, there may be some truth to that.  A robot expert from New Zealand examined 6,000 Legos and found the faces  have more frowns and weapons than ever before.  He's worried that could have a negative impact on how children play.  Every year children spend five billion hours playing with Legos.
 
An 11-year-old San Antonio boy's rendition of the National Anthem at game 3 of the NBA finals has brought on some harsh comments.  Sebastien De La Cruz was a hit Tuesday night, but he has since faced internet backlash with people making comments about his race.  He believes it's because he wore a mariachi outfit.  Last year, Sebastien appeared on the TV show "America's Got Talent" as a mariachi singer.  Sebastien says he isn't letting the situation get him down.
