Basic Facebook tagging etiquette for pet businesses.

Yesterday I came across a terrific article on Facebook tagging by Mari Smith, the guru on social media.

Some of you may be asking...what is Facebook tagging? Facebook said it best...
"We hope that tagging your status updates and others posts from the Publisher will enable you to share in a more meaningful and engaging way, and connect with even more people."
I use tagging a lot on my Facebook pages, including my Facebook page for Pawsible Marketing. It's a great way to share links to information I've found on the Internet with my clients and prospective clients to keep them informed of the pet industry, and marketing in general.

Here are the basics of how it works:

If you have personally liked a page or friended someone on Facebook, and they have a great article that you believe will be interesting to visitors and readers of your Facebook business page, you can @ tag them in the Facebook message.

You do this by first inserting the link, then the message box pops up for you to type your message. Type your message and type an @ symbol. Then begin typing the name of the person or name of the company, or organization you would like to attribute the article or link to (with no space in between the @ and the name). After a split second wait, you should see the name of the person or company populate for you, then you can select them and they will automatically be populated, linked and tagged in your message.

I use tagging to provide credit and attribution back to the person, company or organization from which I found the link as a way of saying thank you; and as a way to provide credit and thanks to those I work with and want to promote.

When you tag, the message that you post on your wall will also show on the wall of the person, company or organization that you tagged, so they will see it.
