When you tag a friend on Facebook, a link to that person's profile is added to the tagged item. Although Facebook allows you to tag people in photos, notes and status updates, the Facebook app for the iPhone limits tagging to photos only.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Launch the Facebook app on the iPhone. Tap "Facebook" at the top of the app.

  2. 2

    Tap "Photos," then tap the album containing the images you want to tag.

  3. 3

    Tap an image to open it. Touch the photo to display the image options.

  4. 4

    Tap the arrow button in the bottom left corner of the image. Touch "Tag This Photo."

  5. 5

    Touch the area of the image that you want to tag. Type the name of the friend you want to tag; a list of friends appears beneath the search box.

  6. 6

    Tap the name of the person you want to tag. Tap the photo again to tag another person, or touch "Done" to finish tagging the image.
