The Islanders are taking social media to the next level and we want our fans to join us for the ride. Whether it's on Facebook or Twitter, being connected to the Islanders has never been easier.

For those of our fans who are using Twitter, here is a complete list of all the #'s that you will see the team using. We may throw some fun off-the-cuff ones in once in a while too.

What is a hashtag? A hashtag is the number character (also called the 'pound key') on your keyboard (#). The hashtag symbol is used in the front of relevant keywords in a tweet. When you click on a hashtagged word, it directs you to a search page with tweets containing that same hashtag to allow you to read what other people are saying on the same topic. Hashtags are used in hockey-related tweets to help fans filter conversations by team or current event.

Use these to help find Islanders or any NHL information. If you have any questions write to us @NYIslanders on Twitter or post on our wall on Facebook, www.facebook.com/newyorkislanders.
