Tagging on Facebook Made Easy

I’ll be the first one to admit it – Facebook can be finicky when tagging, but perserverance will prevail.

Tagging is the BEST Way to Increase Your Reach For tag-youre-itYour Photo, Post, or Comment


Tagging in a Post/Status Update

To tag someone in your post, start typing their name and then select their profile from the dropdown menu that appears (make sure to capitalize the first letter of their name). To tag a Page, type the “@” symbol and then start typing the Page’s name.

(Using the @ symbol for either a page or a profile is more consistent)

Tagging Yourself or Your Friends in a Photo:

  1. Click the photo to expand it
  2. Hover over the photo and click Tag Photoat the bottom
  3. Click the person in the photo and start typing their name
  4. Choose the full name of the person you want to tag when it appears
  5. Click Done Tagging


If you want to tag friends in multiple photos in an album at once:

  1. Go to the album
  2. Click Tagat the top right of the page
  3. Enter the name of a friend or page to tag
  4. Click each photo you want to tag with that name
  5. Click Save Tagswhen you’re finished
  6. Repeat this process for each friend or page you’d like to tag

Keep in mind that when you tag someone in a photo, that person’s friends may also see, like or comment on the photo. Also, if you tag a photo that was not uploaded by a friend, the person who uploaded the photo will need to approve the tag.

How Facebook Tagging Works –

Tag people in your posts

Add tags to anything you post, including photos and updates. Tags can point to your friends or anyone else on Facebook. Adding a tag creates a link that people can follow to learn more. Adding tags can let people know when they’re in photos or other things you share. People you tag can receive a notification so they can see your post. The post may also go on the person’s profile and appear in their friends’ news feeds.

Facebook Has it’s Own Craigslist – Marketplace

Have you seen Marketplace yet? marketplace

Facebook started rolling out Marketplace this week.

These platforms are rampant! I just signed up with www.nextdoor.com – a neighborhood chat, sell, inform. Pretty cool because it is specifically for your neighborhood, which is great for events. nextdoor


Marketplace allows buying and selling physical items in your neighborhood. They have had some unusual offerings already and will have to reign in their boundaries to avoid sexual services and live pythons.

“As we expanded Marketplace access, we encountered a technical issue that prevented our reviewing system from identifying some posts that violated our Commerce Policies and Community Standards,” reads an emailed statement from Facebook Director of Product Management Mary Ku. “As a result, certain posts with content that violated our policies were made visible to people visiting Marketplace. We are working to fix the problem and will be closely monitoring our systems to ensure we are properly identifying and removing violations before giving more people access to Marketplace. We apologize for this issue.”

I wish them well and of course all the best to you.
