The Complete Guide to Facebook Mentions and Tags for People and Pages - The Social Media Hat
Ever want to view all the Facebook posts you and your significant other have both been tagged in or shared? There's a hidden URL for that. The little-known Facebook search feature lets you deep-dive into what Facebook friends based on their current location or relationship status. Pope Francis: Lord's Prayer to CHANGE as it implies God 'induces temptation'. Facebook has just launched relationship and friendship pages in the you don't like Facebook's automated selections, you can change them.
Thereafter, users were able to control what types of information were shared automatically with friends. Currently, users may prevent friends from seeing updates about several types of especially private activities, although other events are not customizable in this way. With the introduction of the "New Facebook" in early February came a complete redesign of the pages, several new features and changes to News Feeds. On their personal Feeds now integrated with Wallsusers were given the option of removing updates from any application as well as choosing the size they show up on the page.
Furthermore, the community feed containing recent actions by the user's friends contained options to instantly select whether to hear more or less about certain friends or applications. On March 7,Facebook announced a redesigned newsfeed. Friending "Friending" someone is the act of sending another user a friend request on Facebook.
The two people are Facebook friends once the receiving party accepts the friend request. In addition to accepting the request, the user has the option of declining the friend request or hiding it using the "Not Now" feature.

Deleting a friend request removes the request, but does allow the sender to resend it in the future. The "Not Now" feature hides the request but does not delete it, allowing the receiver to revisit the request at a later date.
It is also possible to remove a user from one's friends, which is referred to as "unfriending" by Facebook. There has also been a study on why Facebook users unfriend, which found that differences, especially between ages, and few mutual friendships were the dominant factors correlated with unfriending, all of which mirrors the decline of physical-world relationships.
Wall[ edit ] The Wall is the original profile space where Facebook users' content until December was displayed. It allowed the posting of messages, often short or temporal notes, for the user to see while displaying the time and date the message was written.
A user's Wall is visible to anyone with the ability to see his or her full profile, and friends' Wall posts appear in the user's News Feed. In JulyFacebook allowed users to post attachments to the Wall, whereas previously the Wall was limited to text only. The concept of tagging in status updates, an attempt to imitate Twitter,  began September 14, This meant putting the name of a user, a brand, an event or a group  in a post in such a way that it linked to the wall of the Facebook page being tagged, and made the post appear in news feeds for that page, as well as those of selected friends.
Later, a numerical ID for the person could be used. In addition to postings by other users, the Wall also displayed other events that happened to the user's profile. This included when information was changed, when they changed their profile picture, and when they connected with new people, among other things. While not technically required, it is preferred by other users that you reserve this option for when someone is actually pictured in an image.
Facebook's facial recognition will allow you to click a face and assign a name to it - and may even suggest one of your friends! Once your post is published, your friend s will get a notification that they've been tagged in your post. If you want to tag people in multiple photos in an album at once: Go to the album Click Tag at the top right Enter the name of a person to tag Click each photo you want to tag with that name Click Save Tags when you're finished Repeat this process for each person you'd like to tag Can You Tag Pages?
As mentioned earlier, you cannot tag a Facebook Page in a post. Facebook Pages also cannot tag Facebook users or other Pages. Pages can, however, tag products. This feature is reserved for businesses that have products of their own and have set them up beforehand or on the fly. You can, however, check in to a business which is similar to a tag.
Instead of saying you're with a business you're simply saying you're at a business. While creating or editing a post, simply click on the Check In button and begin typing the name of the business. The initial set of recommended businesses will be based on your location and past check in history. As you type more characters, more specific matches will appear.
While using an character at the front does alter the results, in the end it doesn't seem to matter. Facebook will display up to 15 results at a time, with the results changing each time you change or add a character. If you do not see the Page or business you want to check in to, try opening Facebook in a new tab and doing a search for that business.
You may find that their Page name is not quite what you were entering and that a more exact attempt will yield better results.

Continue on to learn about using tools to mention, when to mention, and more. While I have not tested every third party scheduling tool, the answer seems to be No.
You cannot mention Facebook profiles using scheduling tools. You can, however, mention Pages using some scheduling tools. AgoraPulse - Click on Publish to start a new post, make sure your Facebook Page is selected, and begin typing your message.

Hootsuite - Similarly, use the character within the Compose field to mention a Page.
Whether you choose to share those posts immediately or schedule them, the appropriate Page will be mentioned accordingly.

That's the "slug" at the end of their Facebook URL so, instead of " The Social Media Hat" you would use " thesocialmediahat" and that will offer the exact Page every time. If you're using a different tool, just give it a try using the character and see what happens. Unlike the technical instructions for Facebook mentions to this point, whether you should mention someone is entirely subjective.
There are no rules - you can mention anyone on Facebook who has set their permissions to allow it - but I can, of course, provide some guidelines and context. Here are a few very acceptable reasons to mention another Facebook user: You're sharing their post or content and want to give them credit as part of the share. You're sharing content yours or someone else's that quotes or references the Facebook user you want to mention.
You're sharing something that you know the other person would be interested in like when my friends share pictures of Star Wars Death Star waffle makers and mention me. Somewhat less universally acceptable: You're sharing something that you think the other person might be interested in.
Those are the kinds of mentions that need to be used quite sparingly and with great care. While still coming from a perspective of genuine belief of the other person's interest, it's easy to abuse and annoy, as we'll see with the next example.
Never acceptable under any circumstances: Mentioning influencers you don't have a relationship with just to get their attention. Mentioning all of your friends just to draw their attention. Don't be an ass!
How to See Past Relationships on Facebook
Just as with Facebook users, you can mention Facebook Pages whenever you're quoting and referencing a brand, or sharing their content. Avoid mentioning brand pages just to get their attention, as it's likely to have the opposite effect. When Should You Tag People?
The intended use for Tagging is to indicate when someone's been included in a picture, or was present when a picture was taken. That's why Facebook uses facial recognition and provides a box around recognized faces for you to tap and tag.
And similar to mention-spam, posting a picture and tagging 50 friends just to get their attention is spam. It's a great way to get your account flagged and disabled - more on that in a moment. Other than the Facebook Notification saying "so-and-so mentioned you in a comment" instead of "mentioned you in a post," the result is the same.
