Did you know that FB changed up the back end of your Pages Admin? Love when they do that! LOL Not really. But this is a good opportunity to check your settings and make any changes that are needed.

Flea Market Chic - Page 6-7 Tags

Double check to see if your Page allows others to tag it. Go to EDIT PAGE (at the top of your Page) then EDIT SETTINGS and towards the middle of the page is “Tagging Ability”. Set this so Everyone can tag your Page.

Tagging-another-FB-Page

WHY?

This allows other Pages and users to tag your Page in their posts and photos and makes it easier for their friends and fans to “LIKE” your Page and visit your Page. Without this option, they have to post a link to your Page and well, let's face it, people are not that savvy or they are too lazy to do that or both.

Tagging-urban-outfitters

WHY NOT?

If you have a brand that is under attack or does things that are controversial, like UrbanOutfitters with their regularly inappropriate T-Shirts, then you don't want ANYONE just tagging pics of you because you will have to monitor that and remove tags on unflattering or offensive pics that really ARE NOT related to your business… they don't allow tagging of their FB Page but can you see why, from the comments on the pic above?!

But let's face it. Most of us crafters will not get that kind of negative attention so most of the time, we can let EVERYONE tag our Pages. Unless I totally LOVE you, I am not going to search out your link in the event I can't tag your Page. I might just forget about posting about you altogether. Harsh? Maybe. But that is what everyone is thinking and not telling you :)

Go check out the new back-end on Pages and see what settings to change and what you can update…happy tagging!
