Want to tag a friend to show them something on Facebook? Or perhaps you’re a parent who wants to tag your child in the ugliest, most embarrassing photo of them of all time because that’s what parents on Facebook do.

We’ll tackle tagging people to show them posts, first. And unfortunately for all of you with parents on Facebook, we’ll go over photo tagging after.

That person will be tagged in your photo

In general, you can tag people by typing there name in the designated area and selecting their profile – whether it be in a comment section, on your own profile page, or even if you write a post on somebody else’s page.

You can also tag people (or yourself) in your friends’ photos. If a photo has the “tag” icon (pictured below) in the top right, just tap it, then tap the area of the photo you want to tag. Type the person’s name you want to tag, and select their profile. That’s it! That person will be tagged in the photo.
