Tag Pages

In an attempt to make Pages more unified with the rest of Facebook, the company has officially announced that starting today they will begin to roll out the feature for users to tag Pages in photographs.

Previously, photo tags were limited to just people – friends you knew, family and so on. You couldn’t tag your favorite band or celebrity on Facebook if they were on a Page and you didn’t have them as a friend. All that changes today. Tags can now be applied to Pages of brands & products, or People categories. Eventually Facebook will allow more Pages to be tagged i.e. company Facebook Pages.

Tagging a Page in a photo is done in exactly the same way as anyone would tag a friend in a photograph – just click “Tag This Photo” and enter the name of the Page to tag. Just like regular names, taggable Pages will appear in the list.

Don’t fret if you can’t tag a Page just yet, like all updates to Facebook, it’ll take awhile to roll out across the world.
