@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
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.

This is a must have feature. We may have to reconsider our subscription for HootSuite if this feature is not added in the near future.

Up up!! :) It's very urgently!! Thanks

Hi I would like to be kept updated on development here. Thank you.
I agree with the others that have stated this as before. I can understand that Facebook wants to maintain ownership and that it's difficult to program the API's to talk to one another, but Hoot Suite really loses its relevance for me as a nonprofit social media marketer if I can't tag other organizations or pages.
Unfortunately we cannot make use of Hootsuite without this feature. Bummed to discover this after setting everything up and going through tutorials.
Hootsuite, please make this a feature! We tag other pages in almost every one of our posts, and because this isn't a feature you offer, we can't schedule any of our facebook posts. A huge hassle!
This really should be a feature. Disappointing that it hasn't come about yet. Come on hootsuite!
Not having this feature is a major flaw of Hoot Suite
This is a must have.
I'm pretty surprised that this is not already available... I get the reason but it is a high priority
puhLEEZ make this happen. puhLEEZ.

People... CHILL OUT! This is not Hootsuite's fault. Facebook does not allow mentions or tagging in their API yet... It doesn't even work in the Facebook Mobile app (for pages anyway), if it doesn't work for an OFFICIAL Facebook product, do you think it would for 3rd party? No...
The fact that I cannot tag other company pages (i.e. my clients) through Hootsuite is the only reason I use the Facebook scheduler instead of your product. Please make this change and keep us posted on updates.

Organizationally we have over 10 active properties on all platforms and the inability to mention Facebook pages is a serious detriment. I'm sure it's not a programing deficiency at Hootsuite but an API limitation placed on them by Facebook. The new Big Blue is missing on a lot of corporate activity with the absence of this feature.
Henrik Meng commented
I know a lot depends on the Facebook Graph API, but please make this happen!!!

As a social media manager, I would love to be able to tag other users and fan pages in my Hootsuite schedule posts. Can we have this in 2015 please? Thanks!
Your Hootsuite Help Twitter account lead me to this page. Please add @tagging as a feature. This is seriously one of the biggest and most useful parts of Facebook for a business and as a nonprofit, it allows us to interact with the people we are helping and the causes we are trying to bring attention to. Being able to @tag fellow nonprofits to raise awareness for the good they are doing is INFINITELY more effective than simply naming them in our posts. Please add this soon! This idea seems to have been posted here for 8 months...
hi. i'm new user.
i used to consider HS as a PRO tool. but since I discoverd no @tagging option, it's 60% useful app. When You gonna fix it ??
