Tag your Facebook Fan Page, Group, or Events by using @Mentions

IN Marketing & Wordpress

Facebook Pages

Tag your Facebook Fan Page, Group, or Events by using @Mentions

You can now tag your fave Pages, Friends, Events, and Groups in your Status Update using the "@" symbol.

It’s called @mentions and takes advantage of the fact that most of us are using Twitter and are used to typing @something now.

Useful to marketers especially who want to promote their Pages, Events, and Groups. I thought it only worked for people, so finding out today that it also works for the others is happy news to me! :) Making your pages, events and groups much more viral.. when people post their own updates and use the @mentions to reference the group/page/event, then all of their friends now have a link to it.

Facebook Mentions

I also didn’t realize how many Facebook pages that Facebook teams actually update with news, so I’ve promptly now become a fan of each of them..

If you’d also like to follow Facebook news, become a fan of these pages:

    @Heather – new blog post here http://pennybutler.com/facebook4biz/tag-facebook-fan-page-mentions/ Let me know if it solves your problem or not. Kind Regards – Penny

  3. Heather says:

    I can tag people with @mentions, but I am unable to do it with other fan pages, though it looks like other fan pages are doing it to my fan pages. I have favorited the other fan pages, but it still does not work. I also tried in ie and firefox. Any suggestions?

    1. Penny says:

      @Heather – creating a new blog post to show you how to do it now

    2. Renee says:

      I need this info too. Did Penny create the blog post? Anyone have a link?

      1. Penny Butler says:

        I did create the post http://pennybutler.com/facebook4biz/tag-facebook-fan-page-mentions/
        But I don’t know if it’s accurate now, Facebook has changed a lot since 2010, and some things are “funky”.

    Can you tag a photo on your page as the page?

  5. Penny says:

    1.) Go to your fan page
    2.) Type something, then @yourfriendsname
    3.) Click share
    Now on their profile is a link to your fan page, and on your fan page, is a link to your friend.

    I dunno.. but when I do it, it turns up in both places.. so maybe it’s a privacy setting that you have on your page?

    This is awesome…but how do the pages know when they’ve been tagged? It doesn’t appear on the page feed anywhere. Or is that some setting that needs to be changed…
