When someone is tagged in a post, a link to that person’s profile is created (e.g. a user can click on that person’s name and Facebook will take the user to that person’s profile).
Users can tag their friends in posts and can be tagged in their friends’ text, photo, video, or comment posts. When a person is tagged in a post, they will receive a notification.
Top Tip: Users can remove the tag if they do not want to be associated with the post and can turn on ‘Review Tags’ to see any tagged posts before they are linked to it (see Timeline Review).
This is a tool that allows users to approve or reject posts that they’ve been tagged in before they appear on their Timeline. When a user is tagged by someone they are not friends with, they automatically go to Timeline Review.
When other users view a person’s profile, they will have access to their timeline and everything that has been posted.
