You can still tag someone even if they do not have a Facebook account. The tag will no longer connect to their profile, and the tag text will be displayed in black (rather than blue) font. Continue to upload and tag pictures.
Multiple photographs can be tagged at the same time. It is possible to tag many photos in an album at the same time. Choose an album. Then click the "Tags" link near the top of the page. Type the first letters of the people you want to tag into the text box. Then press Enter or click Add another tag.
Unfortunately, you cannot prevent people from tagging you on Facebook totally. You may, however, adjust your privacy settings so that only you can see tagged images of yourself. You may also untag yourself in images, which means that the individual cannot tag you in the same photo again.
The Facebook Support Team When you tag someone, the photo may be shared with the person who was tagged as well as their friends. This implies that if you haven't previously added their friends in the audience, they may be able to view it immediately. If you want to limit how many people see the photo, we recommend using the privacy settings found under "Privacy & Security" within Facebook.
Tagging is a method of identifying persons in Facebook images, comments, or status updates. When you tag someone, Facebook sends a notification to that person's friends, informing them that they have been tagged. In a single photo, you may tag up to 50 people, and in a single remark, you can tag up to 10 people. The more tags you add, the more opportunities you have to get credit for other people's photos and comments.
Only your friends can see what you've posted on their walls, so only they will receive notifications when you tag them in photos or comments. Your friend list doesn't need to be complete for you to tag people; you can tag incomplete friends too. Only those friends who are online will receive notifications about your tags.
You can tag anyone from one to about 50 friends at a time. After you tag someone, they won't appear as a option for tagging again until their next update. Tagging multiple people with the same tag is allowed; it won't increase or decrease the number of options you have for tagging later on.
Facebook gives no limit to how many people you can tag in a single post; however, if you tag too many people, you'll start receiving error messages when you try to publish your post.
People can remove themselves from your tag by clicking "Remove Tag" on the notice that is sent to them via email or page.
There are several occasions when a friend, friend of a friend, or a "unknown" individual tags you in a photo, video, event, remarks, check-in, status, and so on. Facebook's facial recognition function may also propose "tags" anytime you appear in a photo. These individuals could be friends of your tagged person, or people who look similar to them. If you don't recognize anyone, that means they're new friends.
The reasons someone might tag you include: a photo they like shows up in the News Feed, they think you'd find it interesting, they want to share it with their own network, etc. There are several ways users can tag themselves or others on Facebook. You can click on the "tag" button next to any post or comment, type a special keyword, use one of the pre-defined tags, or use multiple tags if necessary.
Tagging yourself is useful if you want to notify everyone in your network about something specific, such as a conference presentation or job opening. Tagging others allows them to see what's going on in your life that interests them. This could be anything from an album of photos taken at a wedding to an event happening near them. The possibilities are endless!
You cannot remove tags you put on posts.
When you tag someone, their photo or post may be shared with their friends as well as the person who tagged them. Tags are also displayed along with any other information that users include in their tags, allowing their friends to see what kind of thing they're interested in.
Users can add up to 50 tags to a single item. These tags can then be used to search for and find items that are relevant to each tag. For example, if you were going for a jog and wanted to search for friends who were also jogging, you could use the tag "jog". This would return any posts or photos that had been tagged with both "jog" and your name or email address. You could then click through to read more details about each result.
Circling back to our earlier example, if you saw that your friend Josh had tagged you in a photo of himself drinking out of a beer bottle, you would now know that he was traveling in Europe last year and visited Germany. Based on this new knowledge, you might want to message him to let him know how cool it is that he went to Europe.
You can create your own tags if there's a topic that comes up time and time again within the community.
