The Facebook tagging feature allows you to tag people you are friends with, places you are associated with, pages you like and events you are invited to or attending in your Facebook status updates by placing the "@" symbol before the name of the person, place or thing you want to tag. Then, when you begin typing the name of the person, place or thing you want to tag, Facebook generates a list of possible tags, allowing you to tag an event you are invited to or attending on Facebook in a few simple steps.


Step 1

Open the computer's Web browser, and navigate to the Facebook log-in page. Type your Facebook account email and password in the spaces provided, and click the "Login" button.
