Facebook users can tag your pages in your photos. Photo Page added that adhere to the privacy settings of a user, and only appear in the form of a page if you put the photos to view. At first, Facebook only allows Pages category "Brands and Products" or "individuals" who are tagged, but says he is "looking to expand this functionality to more categories of Page with time."

As a label will link to the page appears in the photo of a user, the function could become an important discovery and growth channel for pages.

Previously, users could tag their friends in photos, but now you can bookmark any page with the appropriate category, if you liked it or not.

Back in September 2009, Facebook began allowing users to tag pages status updates and comments. The extended delay before the page labeled at the photos suggests that Facebook understands the abuse and the potential dilution RSS feed of the entity. Pages too could encourage users to ask for labels in the pictures, filling the news feeds of friends with photos that are not so convincing. Facebook will have to ensure that the photos they include only tags on pages, but friends do not give high visibility at newsfeed.
