What exactly is a tag and why do we use it?

What exactly is a tag and why do we use it

A tag is a mention of a person or a connection in either a post or a comment of yours. The reasons why you may want to tag someone are numerous but one of the most common ones is the case that you may want to thank someone for their contribution in something.

Here we need to mention something important. Tagging a person or a company to a post or comment of yours encourages engagement with your posts and your comments. The person or the company you have tagged will be notified that they were tagged in a post or comment.

At this point you should be aware of the fact that the people or the companies that you tag in a post or comment are associated with their profiles and the viewers can click on any of those (the person’s name or the company’s name) and that gives them the opportunity to navigate to their profiles.

Another thing we would like to mention at this point is that members of LinkedIn don’t have to be your connection in order for you to tag them of for them to tag you. For example, a company doesn’t have to be your connection in order for you to tag it.

Now, let’s check out the process you need to follow if you want to tag a company on LinkedIn.

In case you are using your desktop and you want to tag a company on LinkedIn, you need to follow these steps:

  • First, you have to go to your LinkedIn homepage, and click the “Start a post” option or if your tag has to do with a comment you need to click the “Comment” option that appears at the bottom of someone else’s post.
  • Then, you have to type “@” and after that, you need to start typing the name of the company you want to tag. At this point there will appear a list of potential companies that you may want to tag according to what you have already typed.
  • From the list that appears, just click on the name of the company you want to tag and continue with typing the rest of your post or comment. It doesn’t necessarily have to be just one company. You may want to tag more companies. If that’s the case, just click all the names of the companies you want to tag.

Now, in case you are using your mobile and you want to tag a company on LinkedIn, the process you need to follow is this:

  • First, you need to tap the “Write a post” that appears at the top of the screen or “Post” that is located on the navigation bar or if your tagging a company has to do with a comment, you need to tap on the “Comment” option that appears at the bottom of someone else’s post.
  • Then, you have to type “@” or tap it from your keyboard.
  • After you have typed that, you should start typing the name of the company that you want to tag. Then, just tap on the name of the company that you want to tag (from the list of the potential companies you may want to tag according to what you have typed, that appears) and continue with typing the rest of your post or comment. It doesn’t necessarily have to be just one company. You may want to tag more companies. If that’s the case, just tap on all the names of the companies you want to tag.

Here we need to mention that after you have finished with your post or comment, the company or companies that you have tagged will receive an email and a notification that you have tagged them.
