Instagram went from being a discreet social network for photography and image lovers to becoming a powerful and popular tool with more and more users. It is ideal not only for those who want to be distracted but also for those who want to show their opinions, articles, or art pieces, among many other things.
Instagram has been renewed over time, and for a long time, it is also possible to tag people in the images we publish for them to be notified of the existence of our post. Are you new to Instagram and you are not sure how to do it? Keep reading this article as we explain how to tag on Instagram below.
Tagging on Instagram is very easy. However, normally, some doubts arise about how you work with this alternative, which by the way, is quite different from the way it is tagged on Facebook.
Some things to know about this feature are:
Only you can put tags on your photos. No one will be able to tag on them.
By tagging someone, the photo can be seen depending on the type of profile you have. If your profile is private, the photo will also be private and therefore, only those who follow you will be able to see it. If the person you have tagged, you will receive a notification to see the photo. If your profile is public, everyone will see the photo, and tagged people will receive a notification.
The photos you are tagged will appear on your profile, but you can hide them and prevent them from appearing there, as we will explain in the following steps.
To tag on Instagram, you can do it during the photo publication or once it is published. To do it before publishing it, you will simply have to choose the option to Tag people that is just below the section in which you write the description and the hashtags, so when you publish the image, it will already be tagged with who you are interested in.
After choosing the tag option, you should search for the users you want to mention by their names, select, and normally publish the photo.
If you want to tag an image on Instagram that you have already published, you can also do it quickly and easily. You just have to go to the image you want and press the 3 points or the nut in the lower right corner.
There select Edit and once the image appears to edit you will see at the bottom of it the option Label person, select it and label whoever you want.
But how to remove a tag on Instagram or prevent the photo from appearing on my profile? Doing it is very simple:
Enter your Instagram account and press the icon of the doll located in the lower right corner to see your profile.
In your profile, press the icon of a doll in a dialog box to see the photos in which you have been tagged.
Once there, select the photo you want to hide or delete and click on it only once.
You will see how all the people tagged appear. To remove or hide the image from your profile, you just have to press on your username. By doing so, you will be able to perform both actions quickly and easily.
