How to tag someone on Facebook

When we tag someone, we create a link to their profile. The post will also be added to that person's timeline after tagging him/her. We can tag someone in a photo for showing who's in the photo with us. If we tag a friend in our status update, anyone can go to our friend's profile by clicking on the name. Our status update will also be shown up on that friend's timeline.

The tagged friend will be notified. When we tag someone in our post, the post could be visible to the audience we selected plus friends of the tagged person.

These are the following steps used to tag a friend on Facebook:
