Facebook's API does not support tagging of Profiles at this time; Tagging of Facebook Pages in posts by Facebook Pages was released on March 23rd, 2016


  • A few times now, I see the @mention on Facebook has been replaced with the words 'mysteriously un-named' because it's not supported. Can you disable this feature so it still shows the original @mention text?
  • Hey Anon! To confirm, are you trying to @Mention a Facebook Page or Profile? Can you send over a screenshot of what you're seeing on your end so that I can look into it further or forward this issue to our Support Team?

    We need to be able to tag facebook profiles on initial posts. For one of the pages we manage, much of the content is user submitted, and we tag the person who submitted the info. Currently the only way to do this is through the facebook platform.
