Here is the BIG question. How Would FaceBook Have Been Like Without The Tag Feature?. When most people hear the word tag on facebook they get irritated, to me there are no reasons to be upset on a tag, probably the update may have relationship with you on the other hand this may also be an honour as the updater deems you worthy to be tagged.
After some arguments on facebook in regards to this, Mr. Kabenlah wrote a wonderful article worth reading, Titled: To Tag or not To Tag? That is a Million Dollar Question. Alot have been said about the “the tag or not to tag” issue now we have to see what facebook would have been like without the tag feature.
What is Facebook Tag Feature?
The facebook tag feature allows you notify friends of a new update, it could be written words, photo’s or even video’s.
While we go futher let’s see some happenings in respect to why people see tagging as something irritating, according to facebook.
When you tag someone, you create a link to their profile. The post you tag the person in may also be added to that person’s Timeline. For example, you can tag a photo to show who’s in the photo or post a status update and say who you’re with. If you tag a friend in your status update, anyone who sees that update can click on your friend’s name and go to their profile. Your status update may also show up on that friend’s Timeline.
When you tag someone, they’ll be notified. Also, if you or a friend tags someone in your post, the post could be visible to the audience you selected plus friends of the tagged person.
How does this seem to be irritaing? Yes! Most people misuse the facebook tag feature by using it when not necessary, example of such are some kind of facebook friends tagging me on a photo where the former president of Nigeria is making a warning. You can see the photo below;
Some Reasons Why I Tag
