@tagging for Facebook statuses
allow @tagging of friends/fan pages within Facebook status updates
add the ability to add facebook tags in a scheduled post!
I know I would use hootsuite waaaay more often if this feature existed!
allow to post more photos on facebook profiles and pages and allow the tag (@) of friends and pages
Tagging is essential for our business as we promote third party clients. Also we need to be able to link to their Events and Pictures as well as just their pages. It's extremely annoying that these iconic features of Facebook are not available on this supposedly amazing platform.
It looks like Hootesuite still doesn't offer this option. While hootesuite is an amazing resource, in my opinion tagging is pretty necessary in growing an audience (specifically to Facebook) and jumping in conversations (along with hashtags now). So, one question... when (not if) will hootesuite start offering this? We all know it's only a matter of time... ;-)
We're having to NOT use Hootsuite for some of our FB posts because tagging on that platform doesn't work through the Hootsuite scheduler.
Make it possible to tag people and businesses with facebook status updates, especially scheduled updates. As things stand I currently can't tag on either and it really limits the exposre of my updates.
We like to tag our customers in different posts if the question that they are asking pertains to a past post!
It doesn't have to be @ tagging, but a way to tag ANYTHING just like you are able to on Facebook is something I NEED to be able to do. When I do facebook posts, I tag establishments AND the people that are working at said establishments. It ensures that the post I have created appears on their facebook pages as well.
Hootesuite is useless for business purposes if we cannot @tag fan/friend pages in our posts
Add the possibility of tagging other profiles in Facebook posts. Example: I am a company and I want to tag one of my product 's profile in a post. Or I am a foundation organizing an event and I want to tag the a profile where the readers can see the news about the event.
will be awsome to be able to tagg people using the @ function , with hootsuite !!!!
I want to sugest that when we work with facebook pages we can link posts with another pages or community, like fb feature.
enable tagging users for Facebook pages -- this is an extremely useful tool for business (& personal) use when scheduling posts!
Please, I really love this app, but if there is no chance to link pages, I can not work with this anymore. I am workin for a musiclabel and for example if there is a review of a band, I want to link the fb-page of the band and maybe the review page. Why this is not possible?
When scheduling posts, we can tag names on Twitter but not on Facebook. It is very important to tag on Facebook!
HootSuite needs the ability of auto complete for Facebook user-names. That would also provide the ability to post directly to a friend's wall in Facebook from the "Compose message..." text box.
We are fans of lots of other pages and want to be able to tag them in our posts or share their events using HootSuite.
Develop a function to status tag for Facebook within Hootsuite!
The ability to tag other facebook users and pages for anyone who manages a fanpage would be extremely helpful. Small businesses and non-profits rely on facebook to network and get their info out, so the ability to schedule an update with a tag would be a powerful tool for facebook api users, and a strong selling point to bring new users to hootsuite
When you post within FB, you can link to other pages/friends by using the "@" symbol, and then typing in their name. It'd be a very useful feature to have in Hootsuite so I could schedule posts ahead of time with links. Thanks!
When I type the "@" symbol in a FB status it brings up a list of names I can reference. I should be able to do this in HS too.
Facebook just recently updated their tagging feature to include all sorts of additional "taggables," currently hootsuite doesn't support ANY Facebook tags, it would be nice if some of that functionality, even if not all of it, were brought over.
Thanks for the overall great app though!
enable ability to tag Facebook pages via Hoosuite updates
allow a way to tag people, pages, events, etc. in Facebook and twitter updates
I use the @ sign a lot in my Facebook status updates to link to other people and events. It would be nice if there were a way to do this especially for scheduled events.
tagg people in a facebook update by doing @name to facilitate conversations
Currently if you are on Facebook you can @ tag a page and have your post show up on their wall and they show up as a link in your status post. When I do this in HootSuite posting to my Facebook page it simply shows up @________ (whatever the company name I'm trying to tag is).
I propose that Hootsuite enable this functionality so that you can leverage this Facebook tool for marketing.
It would be great to be able to tag Facebook pages using '@Facebook page name'. I'd like to be able to schedule the following days shout outs and use the tag function for this.
Be able to mention facebook friends would be very handy
While this is not currently possible with our integration with Facebook through their API, we’ll continue to monitor for any changes. This would be a great feature!
wow i can't imagine this isn't forefront of your offerings - it makes using hootsuite for the social business network very challenging. If I can't tag, I have to go back and forth between FB and HS....when are you planning on adding that feature? Seems you would lose many customers if it's not offered soon, no?
please add this feature yesterday
None of the commenters here can read or what? It is NOT the HootSuite to blame. You can't tag using a third party app like Hoot Suite or Post Planner because FACEBOOK API DOES NOT ALLOW IT!
Please add this feature! It is really needed.
Definitely add the ability to tag people for facebook into hootsuite. It is a huge drawback and most times I won't use Hootsuite to do so, I will simply do it in facebook. Looking for another program that will right now.
how is this not part of the program? This is essential for marketing!
Please do allow for @tagging of friends/fan pages/pages within facebook status updates. This is a really important feature.
Please resolve this issue, this is an important feature

Not having this enabled makes Hootsuite less efficient. Please get this enabled asap. Thanks.

To sound like a broken record, this feature is a must-have!
Please please please add this feature.
This feature is required - Without this feature I'm looking at other SM management tools.
Any update on when this will be available? I want to switch over to Hootsuite exclusively for Facebook posts for the non-profit I work at. However, many posts include tagging to refer people to other services or to thank supporters. If I can't tag them, this is a HUGE problem is going to REALLY limit my hootsuite use. Please let me know how soon this feature will be available.

Not being able to tag pages is a serious weakness in using HootSuite.
Please add Facebook tagging feature! We love hootsuite but won't use it because we need this feature!!!!!! Thank you!

This is my biggest issue with the system. Everything else works so well, but this really makes me re-think using the service.
I feel like I've lost functionality because this isn't a feature. Many of my company's FB posts involve thanking organizations. If I can't tag them, this is a HUGE problem and a major inconvenience. I wanted to schedule a thank you for tomorrow and now I can't because I can't tag the organization. My company just paid for Pro and I'm honestly considering recommending we cancel during the trial period because I'm already seeing such a drop in functionality compared to just using the pages for Facebook or Twitter.
Any update on the eta this functionality will be implemented? Unfortunately, this would be a deal breaker for me (currently under 30-day trial) as well due to the amount of tagging that is required for my postings. I am hopeful that HS will implement a solution soon as the overall service is such a timesaver!
