Facebook tagging helps you to boost reachability and user engagements on content. Inform people and brands in your niche about the latest post updates and thereby drive visits to your pages. This is a proven strategy to increase website traffic and generate more sales.
We often tag friends in status updates, photos, and videos posted on our Facebook profiles. Can do the same thing on Facebook business pages also?
