A minor tweak on Facebook now lets users tag Pages in photos on the site. Now, for example, if you attend a live show you can tag your pictures with the artist’s name.
The feature, which the social network rolled out on Wednesday, lets users tag Pages for “Brands & Products” or “People,” though it’s planning to expand the option to other kinds of Pages soon.
Tagged photos will show up on the “Photos” tab of a Page site and users don’t have to be fans of a particular Page to add a tag.
Addressing privacy concerns, Facebook said in a blog post that photo privacy settings will not change if you tag a public entity in your pictures:
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”.
