    Facebook fan pages are good way of marketing your blog and service. Though in order to make it more viral, you need to enable features which will let complete interaction from your fans. We have already shared some tips to Promote website on Facebook, and now here I’m sharing a quick tip which will help you to create more engagement on Fan pages.

    But, before we move ahead: here are some suggested posts for Facebook admins:

    Photos are always a popular medium of engagement on Facebook and this is one feature, which we have for fan pages too. Tagging is an additional feature, where one can tag his friends in a picture and it will show in his profile (Depends on his privacy settings).

    Photo tagging on Fb Fan pages.

    Once you enable Photo tagging on Facebook page, your fans will be able to tag their friends on photos uploaded on your Fb fan page. You can also create a fun album and allow people to tag friends to make it more viral.

    By default photo tagging feature is disable by default and here is a quick work around which will enable photo tagging on your Facebook fan page.

    Go to this link:

    Now after enabling feature “Allow all fans to tag photos”, your Facebook fan page members will be able to tag their friends on any photos.

    How to Tag Facebook Photos?

    Once you have enabled tagging images for Facebook feature. Upload any image and try tagging your friends. You can ask any of your friend to tag a friend on Facebook to verify.

    Personally, I find this feature very useful where you can hold a contest to upload any graphics and tag 10-15 friends and get more comments. 

    This is very useful if you are running any contest and giveaway. Do let us know what else do you do to give better experience to your fan page fans.

    Actually if you’ve already added photos to your fan page, on the left side where your photo albums show up, there is an option to “Edit Settings” – you can change this setting there too. Thanks for pointing this out!

    Great trick !! i guess this will be very useful :)=
    thank You



    Thanks for sharing this trick!



    I a bit confused about this. I’m a photographer. I don’t want to allow people to upload their own images. I just want my fans to be able to tag themselves on their portrait after I upload it. It lets me choose “don’t allow uploads” and “allow them to tag”. But it doesn’t seem to be working. Has anyone gotten this combination to work?



    I have noticed this as well! I post pictures from school dances and let the kids tag themselves, it has been working fine until yesterday where the kids cannot tag themselves.
