5 new ways to tag Facebook photos to pages

How to take advantage of the ability to tag brands, products and companies to photos.

If you haven’t already noticed, Facebook recently released a new tagging system for the photo galleries on Facebook pages and profiles.

We now have the ability to tag photos with a brand, product, company or person’s Facebook page, similar to the way you tag your friends in photos. When a page is tagged, the photo will show up on the Photos tab—not on the wall like many personal accounts.
