So you have a Facebook profile or business page and you want to know how to ‘tag’ someone! Whether you’re using Facebook for personal use, business, or a combination of the two, tagging people and /or businesses in your posts and photos is essential to increasing your social reach. When you are tagged (or a friend, or business associate) in a Facebook photo, everyone that has access to the photo can see who you are, and can click your name to learn more about you, and potentially your business — which is another way to grow your social reach.
Tagging a photo on Facebook is as simple as clicking to expand the photo you want to tag someone in, hitting ‘tag photo’ (screenshot 1), followed by clicking on the face you want to tag (screenshot 2). Click ‘done tagging’, and you’re all finished!
One key thing to remember when tagging is that you are essentially creating a link to someone’s profile, so use your best judgement when it comes to someone’s privacy. ‘Tagging’ also will send the person a notification, which can be fabulous to keep you top-of-mind if you’re using this as a business strategy.
