Tagging is available only if you upload the video directly to Facebook—if you share the link, the video is fetched from YouTube, not Facebook so you can't tag them.
Might I suggest dropping a comment and doing an @Mention?
There is no option to untag yourself from a comment. So many people have raised this issue but Facebook still has not included this feature.
See Arie L 's answer (from Facebook Help Team) on the same question.
Good question. Let me explain the answer one by one.
If you are the one uploading that photo, your privacy settings will apply to the post. If you've set the friends of friends settings, all the friends of your friends can see the photo, if you tag your friends in it. The exception is if you've explicitly excluded a person or list from the post. In that ...
You can achieve this by going to your Privacy Settings.
Select Edit Settings under "How Tags Work"
Click Off next to Timeline Review
Review the information about Timeline Review and select Enabled from the dropdown.
Short answer: no.
You can only block tagged photos from appearing in your timeline until they are approved, or remove your tags after they were posted. But it is not possible to prevent your friends from tagging you in their own photos.
This is accomplished through the Facebook Graph API.
At Facebook's core is the social graph; people and the connections
they have to everything they care about. The Graph API presents a
simple, consistent view of the Facebook social graph, uniformly
representing objects in the graph (e.g., people, photos, events, and
pages) and the connections ...
Admin (or any other person) can tag anyone who has participated in a discussion regardless of their connection status with the person being referenced. On the other hand, Pages (a person using Facebook as a Page) can tag only other Pages or Groups (i.e. non-person entities).
Previously, Facebook used to edit status but not comments. And the recent updates in Facebook is - you cant edit status but you can edit your comment. :)
Now, what you can do is - Post a comment on your status and type '@' and then start typing the name of that person. It will automatically show you the list of related names. Then you can select the name to ...
When I have an inbox that I need to take care of regularly (Facebook, StackOverflow, physical mailbox) I make a recurring task to check and clear out that inbox. So you could as a workaround make a task in your normal to-do list to "Answer Facebook messages" every day or week, and answer them all then.
You could also use Quicksilver to create a custom ...
I had the same Problem and solved it with the following change in my privacy settings.
Go to "Timeline and Tagging Settings" and Check out the Option "When you're tagged in a post, who do you want to add the audience if they aren't already in it?"
It was set to "only me" and I changed it to "friends" and now friends can see post I've been tagged in.
Yes, it is possible to tag a Facebook group in a post. Below are instructions:
Log into your Facebook account and then navigate to the item you'd like to update with a tag. Click on the "Comment" hyperlink beneath a status or image posting to tag a Facebook user in the post's comments sections. To tag a group to your status, click inside of your ...
If you look at the setting to control tagging it has the explanation that you're looking for. It says "Note: This only controls what's allowed on your timeline Posts you're tagged in still appear in search, news feed and other places on Facebook."
Go to your timeline and click on View Activity log.
Then look at the left-top corner, there you will find Tag review and Timeline review. Click on one of them (actually which is required to click- if someone tagged you then you need to click on tag review. So is Timeline review if anyone tag you in any post").
Then you can see post(s) or picture(s),if any,...
Go to your Activity page.
You can see the mentioned post there.
Next to that you can see options on right side.
Check whether that post is hidden from your timeline. If so, change it to "Allowed on timeline".
Hope this helps. :)
If you've not approved the status it won't show on your wall. then your friends cant see it if they are not mutual with the tagger.
It will only show on tagger's wall and other people tagged (if any) in status and approved the same.
My profile was having the same problem for a while. I figured out what worked for me. Go to settings, then click timeline and tagging. In the 'who can see things on my timeline' section I had to change those answers to 'friends'. I'm not sure why that affected the visibility of my tagged 'photos of me'album but it did.
Not a solution, but I've noticed that this doesn't happen when viewing as the mutual friend, who is also tagged in the photo.
It also doesn't happen when viewing as another person who is not friends with whoever uploaded the photo, but is friends with me and the other person tagged in the photo.
The problem doesn't seem to happen when whoever uploaded the ...
Facebook has a FAQ for this: I can't tag a Page in a photo.
You can only tag certain types of Pages in photos at this time. These include Pages most likely to appear in photos, such as brands, people and products. If a Page is eligible, you don't need to like it in order to tag it in a photo.
If you manage a Page that's eligible to be tagged in ...
You need to know their Profile ID. If you go to their profile page you will see it in the URL. Look for the part in the web address that contains the following:
If they have a custom name, then go to http://graph.facebook.com/username replacing username with their custom name. It will return something ...
I think that what you need in general is some sort of "Social CRM" tool, although at this point in time I do not have a specific recommendation for you.
A Social CRM tool that is well-integrated with Facebook (and other social media channels) should be able to, among its other capabilities, capture messages received via social media and create and manage ...
Not much of an answer, but in this Mashable article it’s stated that
If the user wishes to report the content to Facebook, he or she can also choose to include a trusted authority figure, such as a teacher or parent, as a contact in that incident report.
No, there is no known functionality (for now) which allows you to edit your status and who you're with (that's the name for tagging someone in a status). You can, anyway, add a location or change the date. As Anusha suggested, you can do that in the comments by tagging a friend. Type @Foo to tag your friend Foo.
Apparently, sometime within the last three years, Facebook either fixed a bug or added a feature that makes this work (again?), at least for the post that this question was originally about.
Unfortunately, there are still some posts for which the menu doesn't even appear, however, when it does appear, it also does work, unlike three years ago, when I wrote ...
