You can always set the privacy.

About Privacy

Once you tend to share a post it opens a popup in that we can have options to add extra content(Optional) about the post and also we will have privacy option to choose between Public/Friends/Custom/Onlyme

Tagging Friends

You can tag your friends by clicking on image and by choosing Tag option or simply you can tag your friends in the popup content by calling them in this way @yourfriendname

If your timeline is viewable by the public, this post will be viewable by the public. If it's only viewable by friends, it will be viewable by friends.

From Facebook help center

If you want to change the audience of a post after you've shared it, click the audience selector and select a new audience. Remember, when you post to another person's Timeline, that person controls what audience can view the post. Additionally, anyone who gets tagged in a post may see it, along with their friends.
