Tagging people in your Facebook posts, photos, or videos is easy whether you’re using the mobile app or Facebook on a computer. You can tag people in posts, pictures, and comments.
Note: In posts and pictures, you can only tag people that are on your friend’s list. However, in the comments, you can tag anyone. Also, you can not tag someone that has disabled the feature of being tagged in their privacy.
When you tag someone:
- They receive a notification that they’ve been tagged.
- The posts they’re tagged in will appear on their timeline, where their friends can see them.
