      Subquestion on your answer : Can you pl tell difference in searching facebook by word and by #hashtag?

      Both in common can affect results by privacy filters set by the users.

      In search, one can search for people, Pages, groups and apps.

      Hashtags shows only related posts of the word you are searching for.

      I can be sure since I haven't used it.But it must be possible via logical operators or as usual search.

      In usual search only one hashtag returns fb results

      How to find same hashtag topics results from both fb and twttr?

      I think,Google searching the term #ipl(or any other topic) twitter+Facebook could be useful.

    PS: Hashtags were never required on fb, because similar functionality was already available to everyone with some common sense.

      I guess clickable hashtags can group conversations of a topic

      Appending a sub-question : How would a user know if hashtag feature has been rolled out for the fb account?

      Is is automatic and confirmed by trial or is there a notification box for activation of the feature?

      No notifications for activation,
      you will see these three signs :
      -Hashtags are clickable
      - Just like @ at symbol mentions a friend or page, # hash sign starts creating hashtags in blue text.
      -This url displays posts with the respective hashtag.
      (It doesn't if hashtags are not active)
