What Is Tag Photo in Facebook?

When you tag someone, you create a link to their profile. Thus, the post you tag the person in may also be added to that person’s timeline and the person will be notified.

If you or a friend tags someone in your post, the post could be visible to the audience you selected and friends of the tagged person. Tages in photos or posts from people you are not friends with may appear in timeline review where you can decide if you want to allow them on your timeline. You can also choose to review tags by anyone including your friends.
