Rate this post

Also thanks to my advice, you have learned how to tag your friends on Facebook, both in posts and in photos. But now you have purchased an iPhone, you have installed the official app of the social network on it but you have not yet understood how to use this function from this platform. As usual, there is no need to worry.

The ability to tag people in Facebook messages and photos is also present on the iPhone, and now I will demonstrate it to you in a practical way. Read the directions I am about to give you and I assure you that you will learn how to tag from iPhone perfectly in a little while.

In older versions of the Facebook app for iPhone it was not possible to directly tag people in messages, so first see in detail how to tag from iPhone, open theApp Store and in the card Updates check that there is not an updated version of Facebook ready to download. If there is, press the button UPDATE placed next to the application name and that’s it.

At this point, you can start Facebook on your “iPhone by” and start tagging your friends just like you do on your computer. In fact, just type the symbol @ (snail) followed by initials of the name of the person to be tagged and, completely automatically, a menu appears from which to select the friend to be mentioned in the post.

You can tag your friends both in the status updates (the ones you can dial by pressing the button State) and in the comments to the posts of other users (which can be left by selecting the item Comment present under the messages of friends). Quick and easy.

Did you know it is possible tag from iPhone even the photos that are posted on your profile? No? Look, it’s that simple. All you need to do is launch the Facebook, press the button Photo that you find at the top and allow the application to access the camera roll of the phone (answer therefore OK to the request made to you).

Then select the photo to tag and publish on the social network, select the checkmark green located at the top right and touch with your finger the point in the image where you want to add the tag. A cartoon will appear with the wording Who is it?, in which you will have to type the name of the friend to tag in the photo.

When the operation is completed, click on the icon pencil at the bottom right, add a comment and (if you want) the geographic coordinates to the image to post and click on the button Publish to share the tagged photo from iPhone with all your friends.
