As artists, we love nothing more than having our clients have their photos celebrated on social media. It makes our hearts so happy when our brides + grooms get dozens of comments on their photos and blog posts - because we know how beloved each of our couples are, and we know that it makes them feel great to see so much love and support from the people in their lives.
Sometimes though, social media gets lost for one reason or another. We know that our clients’ friends and family would LOVE to see photos of their daughters, sons, friends, cousins, etc. on the most important day of their lives! But sometimes, due to privacy settings, when we tag our clients and ‘friendors’ (vendor friends, get it??) in the wedding industry from Facebook on our business page - the photos don’t show up on their timeline, which means their friends and family can’t see what we’ve shared.
And that makes us pretty bummed out, because we want to keep celebrating their new marriage as we share photos and the blog post!!
So … we are going to give a brief tutorial here on how to approve Facebook tags!
How to Approve Tags for Facebook on a Computer
First, go to your Facebook profile page.
Second, click where it says View Activity Log - it’s a button in the lower right of your timeline cover photos.
Third, on the left you’ll see a bunch of filter options. Click on Tag Review, the third option down.
And then you’ll want to click on the little ” ^ ” button and choose “Show on Timeline.”
And BAM! Your tagged photos will show up on your Facebook timeline!
How to Approve Facebook Tags on Facebook Mobile
From a cell phone or tablet using the Facebook Mobile app, the process is relatively the same, it just looks a little different.
- Click on your profile
- Click on Activity Log right below your name
- Click on Filter
- Click on Photos of You
Then again, on the right side you’ll see a ” ^ ” symbol - click on that, and select “Allow on Timeline” (or maybe it says “Show on Timeline” - all of mine are approved right now, so, I’m not 100% sure which one it says!).
WHOOP WHOOP! You did it!!
We recently walked one of our couples through this process, and they had over 500 (!!!) tags waiting for them (and heck no, those definitely weren’t from all of us! LOL). I’d be willing to bet you have some in there waiting on you!
