I always appreciate it when my readers use the Facebook Share Button on my blog to share my content with their friends on Facebook. It’s the greatest compliment I could get. And of course I would love to show my gratitude and say “thank you” to everyone each and every time that happens. But sometimes I actually have no clue who shares my content.
So for all the times I missed to say “thank you” to YOU. Here it is … “Thank you so very much for sharing my content with your friends on Facebook! I truly appreciate you!”
Did you know there’s actually a little trick that alerts people when you do share their content on Facebook? It’s pretty cool! I learned this little trick from my friend Ryan Biddulph.
How to tag people when you share content on Facebook.
It’s very easy. Just follow the illustrations below to find out how to do that.
For example, if I wanted to share a blog post of my friend Ryan I would click the Facebook Share button on his blog and the above window would pop up. To tag Ryan all I have to do is type the “@” symbol and start typing his name. Facebook will then load a list with all of my friends who’s first name is Ryan. I then just highlight and click the person I want to tag and voilà it’s done.
As you can see in the image above, his name is now a clickable link. Of course you can tag more people and share content with them. (The cool part here too is, that since everyone’s name is clickable people can check each other out and make more connections.)
Oh, by the way, always make sure you add the correct picture to the blog post when you share it. You can do that by choosing the correct thumbnail.
In the image below you will see that Ryan’s blog post is now posted on my Facebook profile page. By the way, it is posted on his profile page as well for him and all his friends to see.
But it doesn’t stop there.
Not only can you share people’s blog posts and tag your friends to let them know of the great content that’s out there. You can also share content that is already on your Facebook profile page. For example a video you posted like in the image below. My friend Liane shared that one with me, which by the way had me in tears.
All you have to do to share content on your facebook page is click the “Share” link and follow the steps above.
So, that’s how you tag people when you share content from Facebook. Pretty quick and easy!
I hope I will never miss the opportunity to say “thank you” again to the great people who share my content.
To Your Success!
