Tagging friends is a way to show that you're currently with them, to call their attention to something you want them to see, or to simply give them a shoutout. Facebook, at its core, relies on our connections with other people and our ability to blow up their notifications by tagging them in funny videos, memes, and statuses. Whether you want to check in to your favorite restaurant with best friend, or write a lengthy post of gratitude to your closest family and friends, there are a couple of ways to tag your friends on Facebook.

Tagging with the @ Symbol

Facebook has made two improvements to its Mentions feature when Tagging FRIENDS. The first allows you to tag friends without first typing symbol and the second allows you to shorten friend Tag, as first pointed out by Inside Facebook. Previously, you had to input symbol and then type out your Facebook friend's name to tag them. Now, automatic friend Tag suggestion feature will activate when you type out friend's name starting with capital letter. Facebook started testing this feature in August 2010, but the feature annoyed users who weren't trying to tag friend. Feature has since been tweak: Tag suggestions are only shown when you type five or more characters of a friend's name, or type a whole name that is less than five characters. Previously, you had to leave your friend's full name or it wouldn't appear as Tag and trigger notification for them. Now, after you've tagged friend in a post or comment, you can then shorten it by deleting the beginning or end of your friend's name. The remaining part of the name will still be highlight, and will show up as a link once the post is publish. Tag shortening should prevent overly formal tags appearing in informal posts or comments. It's worth noting that both these features are for Tagging FRIENDS. Tags of Pages, Events, Groups and other Facebook properties still require symbol to be taggged, and cannot be shortened once Tag. For those new to Tagging on Facebook, it's worth mentioning that symbols do not remain part of your post; it is merely syntax that invoke the Tagging feature itself. Instead, your post simply get link to the relevant Page on Facebook. In September 2009, Facebook extended its Tagging feature from photos to FRIENDS, Pages, Events, Groups, and so on. In March 2011, Facebook enabled Tagging in comments. Interestingly, Facebook for Android app allows users to Tag FRIENDS in posts, but the option isn't yet available on other mobile apps or on mfacebook.

Tagging on Facebook

First, let's define what it means to tag on Facebook. Essentially, tagging is explicit mention of someone in a Facebook post which creates a link to person's profile that anyone can click. It's important to note that you have to specifically create a tag. Simply typing out I go to the mall with Trevor today! It isn't enough to create a tag, so it won't include a link to their profile. To tag someone in a text post or comment, you can simply type a symbol followed by their name. However, photo Tagging is little different, so we'll examine it next.

Business Pages

When someone Tag your business on Facebook, it creates a link between that person's Timeline and your business Page.
