Facebook has launched a new feature today "Photo tagging for Facebook Pages" that enables people to share richer stories with friends about the things they interact with in the real-world, such as businesses, brands, celebrities, and musicians.

A Page can be tagged anywhere that someone can view a photo in the photo viewer. These photos will appear on the Photos tab on the Page, and not on the Wall. In addition, a Page can be tagged by anyone on Facebook, not just people who've Liked your Page.

For now, only Pages within the Brands & Products or People categories brands, can be tagged in photos.

"The privacy of the photo is always respected when a Page is tagged in a photo. If a photo post is published to "everyone," then it can appear publicly on the Photos tab of the Page and the Page admins can see it. If it's just published for someone's friends, only their friends will be able to see that photo.

Page Admins can always choose to disable tagged photos from appearing on the Photos tab by going into Edit Page > Posting Options > and unchecking "Users can add photos"," stated Facebook.

To tag a single photo you are viewing:

  1. Click the photo you wish to tag and select "Tag This Photo" below the photo.
  2. Type the name of the people or product Page you wish to tag.
  3. Repeat this process for every Page in the photo that you would like to tag.
  4. Click "Done Tagging" in the bottom left corner.
