Facebook is the world’s most popular social networking site. Facebook allows you to update your status, upload photos, share your location, and do a variety of other things. Facebook is a force to be reckoned with, with over two billion monthly users. A whopping 74% of people check their social profiles at least once per day.
We frequently share Facebook posts about fun activities with friends and family, as well as photos of our travels and activities. When you tag a friend in a post or photo, you’re indicating who is in the photo or who you were with. Tagging generates a link to their Facebook profile, and they will be notified that they have been tagged. If you tag someone in a post, that post may be visible to the audience you chose as well as the tagged person’s friends.
Have you ever wanted to know how to tag someone in a Facebook comment, photo or video? This article will go over everything relating to tagging.
