The simplest way I can explain...hmm... Like a group of something I guess, maybe relating it to something. For example,
Agh! I can't see!! #AsianProblems
Or..I don't understand how all of the internets cats are so cute and mine are boring #MemeCats
I don't fully understand it though :-/

The above answers aren't too helpful (haha)

Basically, you can put it at the end of your comment or whatever you write in some apps and websites. Then people search and if you have a hash tag of that it comes up.

Example: I take a picture of a cat a post it, putting #hideous at the end of it. Then, someone searches hideous on Instagram, and that comes up because I put the pound sign.

Hope it helped!
