Facebook Updates: No More Tagging of Fans

Sadly, a Facebook update no longer allows you to tag your fans on your Facebook Page (even if they are your friend). The Facebook Manual Auto-tagThis could be a potential problem for some of us. I know for me it is frustrating. I would use this feature to let someone know that I answered their question, because it would send them a notification. Fans do not always get a notification if someone answers a post they commented on. Apparently, this happened back in June, but I was able to tag my fans on most of the pages I administer up until a couple of weeks ago (in fact I can still tag fans on two of the pages I administer), so I missed this update. Sorry about that! Sometimes Facebook’s updates take a while to roll out to some people.
Anyway, there is no way around this update. If you are still able to tag your fans then count yourself lucky!
What do you think? What this a bad update on Facebook’s part? Did you use this feature a lot or not at all? Give me your thoughts in the comments below.
