In a Facebook note, you can tag a person or a page.

If you tag a person, it seems to appear as a notification to that person, as well as to their friends.

If you tag a page, it's really not clear how it relates to that object.

I recently tagged a page that I am the owner of, and I saw no result.

Can anybody explain what page tagging does or is for?

It notifies the other person that you've written about them should they have a Facebook account. It also ties them to what you've written about when other people click their name in the notes.

I guess I thought there was some sort of track-back from pages to notes about them. But that isn't the case. – Geoff Maddock Jul 6 '11 at 15:54
