@ Tagging for Facebook!

In order to give appropriate credit, @ mentions are important and need to be incorporated into scheduling. It looks bad to have an @ mention without a link when posting.

    Admin response

    Facebook has changed it's API permissions due to last years privacy issues.  Now it is not possible to tag people in Facebook posts (without specifying a place) - this restriction has reduced the value in implementing this

    I would just like to add to the comments about moving from hootsuite and not being able to do half the stuff you could there. Sure they reduced the free posts to nearly nothing but at least you could draft a post and tag a page. Super standard in the world of scheduling.

    I'm trying to move over from Hootsuite - even they have tagging ability for Facebook and Twitter. I can't use your platform if I can't tag people - 'you have reduced the value for me in moving to your platform.'

    We beg you - get this added. Other posting services offer facebook tagging... it's essential to help streamline workflow!

    Would love to see this feature implented somehow!

    I can't believe I just bought a Later subscription only to find out this basic function is not there. This makes the service useless to me.
    I switched from Sendible and it had NO problem tagging to Facebook. Why can they do it and you can't?

    Jumping in on this thread, please add this function. We just moved to later since we thought it might solve a lot of problems we had with another platform, only to find this basic functionality for tagging another business missing.

    Please add this. It is silly to have to manually post on Facebook in order to add @mentions if I am using Later. Makes it unnecessary for me to use Later then.

    PLEASE update this feature. Other platforms allow you to do this, out performing Later.

    Pretty much everything we post for our organization on FB tags another business page. Not having this function does defeat the purpose of a service like Later.

    For this very reason I just cancelled my later subscription.

    I have clients that have specifically asked for me to tag other businesses on facebook up to 5 times per week. Not having this feature defeats the purpose of auto publishing to facebook for me... I just have to turn around and tag them myself anyway I might as well post it myself. Huge disappointment for Later.

    I’m definitely going for Buffer pro due to this flaw..

    I switched from buffer not realizing this was an issue. The admin response doesn't justify not adding this feature especially if it's being asked for STILL 3 years from this post. It makes you wonder if admins are actually paying attention to what their users are saying they need. Disappointed honestly

    +1, this is an essential feature. 2020 onwards is about micro-niche and cross-collaboration. It feels “previous level” going into Facebook and editing posts after they have gone live.

    Hi, please think about tagging people on post for Facebook, Instagram and pins for Pinterest ! Hootsuite, by example, gives this option to its customers... It will save time a lot for us.

    Likewise with everyone else... I'll upgrade Later if I can tag facebook posts when I schedule them. Otherrwise it's not worth it for me.

    I've seen this feature with other platforms, it would be truly great to see this with Later.

    About 10 times a month my team has to manually edit a Facebook post to tag other pages. Having a more complete Facebook integration would be a total game-changer.

    PLEASE ADD THIS FEATURE!! I'm not sure what you mean by the API doesn't allow this as other scheduling platforms do definitely allow this.

    I just started a monthly subscription to Later to check out the features...and not being able to tag Facebook pages is a HUGE drawback and won't continue if this isn't added.
