Reasons why you are unable to tag people in your images

Below are the reasons why you are unable to tag people in your photos.

The person in the image doesn’t allow tags

You can tag people in images to make it easier to distinguish them.

However, if you find yourself unable to tag certain friends, it is likely that those friends don’t allow others to tag them in photos.

You should check if it is just certain friends that you can’t tag in your photos.

When you’ve only just become friends

You won’t be able to tag people you’ve only just befriended for a while.

You should see if you’ve only recently befriended them.

Problems with the app

Following updates and maintenance to the app, there will be times when you won’t be able to tag people in your images due to a bug in the app.

You should look at reviews and information sites if you also suffer from crashes and freezes as well as tagging related issues.

Solutions for when you are unable to tag people in your photos on the Facebook app

Below are the solutions for when you are unable to tag people in your photos on the Facebook app.

The person in the image doesn’t allow tags

You should start by asking permission to tag the person if the person in question doesn’t allow tags.

Each user has the freedom to set their tag related settings, and so people who don’t like being tagged can prohibit it.

If you are tagged, the image becomes visible not only to friends but to friends of friends also.

This can become a privacy issue so do be mindful of this when tagging your images.

There are also tag related settings where tagged images can only be seen to a restricted audience or tagging is forbidden all together.

When you’ve only just become friends

You can’t tag someone you’ve only recently befriended.

This is of the same principle as not being able to send friend requests to people who have only just registered.

If you wish to tag a person you have just befriended, you should try tagging them after a few days.

Problems with the app

Regarding bugs with the app, you can only wait for Facebook to fix the problem.

Make sure not to delete or log out of your account in the meantime.

If you wish to continue using Facebook while the app is being fixed, we recommend you use the web browser version.

Summary

  • The person in the image doesn’t allow tags
  • When you have just become friends
  • Problems with the app

In this article we looked at causes and solutions for when you are unable to tag people in your images.

This problem isn’t limited to the app and is common on the web browser version too so please make good use of this article.

Getting carried away and tagging numerous photos will fill up your newsfeed with images.

This may cause your accompanying text to be lost, so if you’re posting multiple images you should use the “with xxx” function or tag in the text.

I hope this article was of use if you wish to tag people in your images on the Facebook app.
