Facebook now allows you to tag photos with names of pages

Summary: Facebook expands tagging ability to include Facebook pages in photo-tagging.

Now, in addition to being able to tag your friends in photos, you can also tag photos with any Facebook pages that you currently "Like". The good news (for brands anyway) is that their feed activity will now be heightened by a proliferation of the millions of personal photos potentially. The more obnoxious byproduct possibility is that the trail of tagging activity in people's feeds could be overkill.

I'm pretty sure alcohol manufacturers will see a brand page tagging surge in their feeds from the college student demographic almost immediately. Now that I think about it, it'll be an interesting data set for brands to see how many of their products end up in Facebook photos. What do you think?

    This could also have the side effect of increasing spam pages.

  • Why can't Facebook fix what they already have

    Take some of these people of the R&D team for new features like this and put them on finding ways to stop all the scam applications, likejacking, clickjacking, and phototagging scams that are destroying facebook. I sure as hell could care less about tagging a brand that would put my photo flat on their page for everyone to see. But hey the teenage girls and naive adults that fall for all those scams and insist on installing every little App that is developed for Facebook will probably love it.
