@tagging for Facebook statuses
allow @tagging of friends/fan pages within Facebook status updates
being able to tag my friends or facebook members on the post
Need to tag people in images I post on facebook or twitter.
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
Hi everyone! Thank you for your continued feedback!
Our developers are examining Facebook @tagging integration with the Facebook Graph API for possible future updates to HootSuite.
Thank you all for your continued patience while we work towards improving HootSuite.

I don't understand why Hootsuite with a huge database of customers and more than enough resources can't implement new important features like this more faster (5 years... seriously..), it just doesn't make sense, only thing i can think about is laziness or lack of caring about your customers needs, because you have the resources to implement anything in no time.
Has this been developed yet.
Tagging would help facilitate my post to a wider audience. Please add this feature!
Here's my vote!

Bueller? Bueller? Bueller?
I'm still on my free 30-day trial and the most important features (this being one of them) that are available through the native apps and websites are disappointingly missing from Hootsuite. I see no point in spending $10/month when I still need to manage every post from every account I'm in charge of. Sad.
You have 468 comments dating back to 2010 asking for this feature. You responded a year ago. What's the deal Travis?
Morgan Coates commented
Hey Travis, your developers were looking into this a year ago! Still not able to tag other pages in my FB post?!
I will leave hootsuite because this feature aint available.
We are a small chamber of commerce with 280 members, we continue to promote not only our area, but our members and their businesses as well. It sure would be easier if we could tag their Facebook pages when we create content through Hootsuite. For now, between the two of us we are adding tags as they get posted. Unfortunately, those can sometimes slip through the cracks and our members miss out.
Please get this done asap. It is a dealbreaker.
Benjamin Pang commented
Same here, pointless to use hootsuite without tagging. Social media is ALL ABOUT TAGGING!
I am shocked that this feature is not yet available. This was wholly disappointing to discover. I will not be recommending Hootsuite for this reason, until it is available.

This is kinda really important.

I would like to see this added to hootsuite. It is very difficult to engage with others without being able to tag them.
I Googled if there was a way to tag other organisations on my Corporate page and I found this! Really need this to be implemented as I have to manually post to Facebook, making Hootsuite a bit pointless.
It would be BEYOND helpful to be able to tag in Facebook posts. Such a bummer to go in and edit after posting. :(
I can't believe I didn't know this before I signed up. Even more shocking that Hootsuite hasn't done it. What gives, Hootsuite?
Seriously, this was first suggested over 5 years ago? What's the status please?
Ronnie's Awesome List commented
Great tool but Facebook tagging is a must. I'm surprised it's not included.
cheryl cowans commented
What is the status of this? The only reason I signed up was for facebook promoting and it sucks that I cannot tag people when their ad is being posted. Simple to do since you have access to my entire facebook account and information
