Facebook Now Allows Fan Page Tagging On Photos…

by 3 comments
This Sunday, when you upload your Saturday night dinner party pictures, you can now tag the restaurant page where you dined out!
Starting today, Facebook allows tagging Fan Pages on photos like tagging friends’ profile. This feature will help people share more about the brands, businesses, etc. they interact with in the real world. Anyone can tag the photos in the photo-viewer, not just profiles who liked the page. Social Media Professionals find this feature as a great branding tool for businesses and professionals using social media.
How to tag pages?

According to Facebook, it is similar to how we used to Tag Your Friends Pictures. Click the photo you wish to tag and then type the name of the page you wish to tag. You can tag a single photo with multiple pages. Once done, simply click ‘Done Tagging’ in the bottom left corner.
What about privacy?

Facebook assures that privacy policy settings will still apply. A page admin can disable the photos from appearing in the photos tab by simply un-checking “users can add photos”. Photo published for everyone becomes visible in the photos tag of the page, whereas photos tagged for friends becomes visible only to the friends of the tagger.
What’s in it for brands?

Certainly, this feature is going to add a boost to branding on Facebook. Someone wearing an Adidas t-shirt can tag the brand on his photo and thus it will get free advertising for the brand. Also, services can be tagged likewise. When you upload your last night dinner party picture, you can tag the restaurant in the picture along with tagging your friends. Got a new haircut that you like? Can tag the salon in your picture! Business professionals can now tag the event, conferences they have attended. Possibilities are endless. Companies can run campaigns to tag their pages for some gifts or free offers.
However, negative publicity is also likely to happen as people will have more freedom to tag and express their opinion about a brand on Facebook. For example, if one gets a bad product and is not satisfied with it, he can simply add the picture and tag it with comments. If this tagging goes viral, it will result in negative word of mouth publicity for the brand. There is a limitation to the amount of tagging-tracking that any brand can do to protect its reputation. Thus, the implications can be both sides, and it depends on the brand a lot on how it goes about interacting with its stakeholders online and how prompt is their social media team to respond in real time.
As each new feature adds in the influential social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, etc., branding and marketing opportunities will increase and with this will increase the needed time commitment for active real time reputation management and monitoring. Small businesses will need professional help (professional social media assistant) to make the best use of the social media sites for promoting their local and online businesses. Addition of new features and applications in Social Media adds to the many reasons why one may need to take professional help in Social Media. As the feature goes live, the immediate reactions will define how brands make the best use of this feature. Let’s wait and watch!

    Hello guys! I began trying to make a little side cash online and joined Warrior Forum back in 2011. In 2012 I was making Adsense Micro Niche sites and also Amazon sites, always focusing on keywords that I could grab an open .com domain name for. I had many flops, but did have an amazon site that did well and make me about $100 a month on average. I got excited and began writing more and more articles, creating more and more sites. Eventually my marriage hit a rough spot because my wife was upset I spent way to much time on the computer so I walked away from the micro niche site world... Fast forward 4 years, the marriage didnt work out anyway and I wish that I would have never left, I now feel like I have so much to learn all over again! Are Amazon sites still a decent way to go? I woulnt ask for anything to be spoon fed to me I know that is a huge pet peeve for many forum members, but any suggestions or just pointing in a general direction would be greatly appreciated!

    What would you write on your blog when you haven't even launched your product? I looked at 10 blogs and saw that most of them wrote about 'How they achieved and X metric' (non-relevant to the product), culture and other stuff when the whole idea is to gain more 'beta interests'! As a marketer, what will you do? In other words, what will be your content marketing strategy?

    I'm investigating running my own affiliate program. One of the issues I'm running in to is the capturing of social security numbers. In the United States a company is required to issue a 1099 for any affiliate who earns more than $600 a year. To do this I would need their social security number. I worry about storing social security numbers and the potential liability if someone hacked the website and got a hold of them.
