  3. Click on What's on your mind? This is the text field at the top of your News Feed under Create a Post.
  4. Type in the @ sign. You can manually tag a friend in a post by typing their name after the @ sign.
  5. Type your friend's name after the @ sign. You will see a drop-down list of names as you type.
  6. Select your friend from the menu. It will tag your friend in your post. You will still see their full name.
  7. Click at the end of the tag you just added. You will now see your cursor at the end of your friend's name.
  8. Press the ← Backspace or Delete button on your keyboard. It will delete your friend's last name from the tag.
  9. Click Post. This button is in the lower-right corner of the Create a Post dialogue box. It will post your tag and/or message on your Timeline.


  • The Tag Friends button does not allow you to delete your friend's last name. You have to manually enter a tag if you don't want to show the last name.
