In the status box, you will notice a set of images or icons located at the lower portion of the box. The icons are a camera, an outline of a headshot with a plus sign, a smiley, and an inverted teardrop shape.
- The camera icon is for photos or videos to be added.
- The outline of a headshot with a plus sign is for tagging people in your post.
- The smiley is for an emoji that will represent what is on you mind and how you feel at the moment.

When you type texts in yourstatus box, you can tag your friends using the headshot icon. When you click the headshot icon, a box will appear with the question â€œwho are you with?â€ You just need to input the names of your friends as theyappearon Facebook, and when you post your status update, your friends, whose names you have inputted, are automatically tagged in the post.
