#fbf and #tbt
The first hashtag with this purpose to recall a moment of the past was #tbt, decoded as a throwback Thursday . This expression emerged in 2006 when a shoe brand called Nice Kicks created a section called Throwback Thursday for publications about old models.
Since then, the section has been updated every Thursday.
Both hashtags (#fbf and #tbt) are used for the same purpose of remembering the past, however #tbt is published on Thursdays and #fbfon Fridays. Therefore, it is up to each user to decide when they want to make their post and choose the appropriate option.
