Tagging is an option that will allow Facebook users to reference their friends who are also on the platform. This happens to be one of the most popular features in Facebook since it lets the people interact with their friends better. In order to know how to tag someone in a Facebook postÂ that you want to create or a picture that you are uploading, all you have to do is write your message, and then write an [email protected] symbol before the name of the friend you want to tag. When you type the name of your friend, you will notice that a drop down bar will pop out with the possible names of the friends you want to tag based on the letters that you have typed. All you have to do is click on the name of the friend that you want to tag and then his or her name will appear in your post.
When you tag a friend in a post, he will be receiving an update on his list of notifications that you have tagged him in a post. Once he clicks on that notification, he will automatically be brought to your post so that he can check it out. You will also receive a notification if your friend likes or comments on your post. In the same way, your friend will receive an update if you will comment back or like his comment. In the future, there will be more options for easier tagging. You can find the new options on how to tag someone in a Facebook post in the updated FAQs portion of Facebook.
