How To Tag A Friend On Facebook From Your Mobile Phone

Share this Post >>

Facebook is the no 1 social networking site which is almost used by all the internet users . To be frank , many of the people who don’t even have a PC are also using Facebook through their mobile phones . Well , a common problem which is often faced by the mobile Facebook users is tagging friends in any comment or status . Usually , on PC , you can just use @ , and type the first 1 to 3 letters of your friends , and after that , all of your friends who name relates with those letters comes up in a drop down menu . You just have to select the person from the drop down menu , and your tagging is done . Well , this feature is also available for the smartphone users but those who are using Java phones , tagging friends on Facebook becomes very hard . So , I have come up with this post to tutor you on how you can easily tag friends on any status or comment from your mobile phone itself . Now , let’s get started :-

1.  First of all , you have to find out the profile ID of the person whom you want to tag . To do so , you can simply go to this profile ( from PC ) and at the address bar , you will notice an URL like this – www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=5678456789 . In this case , the profile ID is 5678456789 . Similarly , you can also find out your friend’s profile ID .

2. You are now ready to tag him on any status or comment . To get started , just type @[Profile ID:Name] where you want the tag to be appeared . For example :-

@[5678456789:Priyangshu Borgohain] Hi , what’s Up !

Well , you are done now ! I hope that you will like this simple trick for sure . I will soon come up with more tricks , till then you may visit my blog for more tricks .

  4. Interesting discovery Priyangshu, But I think it’s time consuming as you need to find the user ID of person by going to their profile and after that you can tag him/her. If you want to tag more than 1 person than it’s really a big headache.

      Well , to be frank , it will take some remarkable time to find out the profile ID of any of your friends but when you will be using FB on mobile & we already know the profile ID of the person whom you want to tag , then trick will be turned out as quite helpful . By the way , thanks for dropping your opinion out on here !

    This is great! I usually work on my computer, and while I am on my timer, I don’t have my Facebook account on screen. Therefore, most of the time, I use my phone to get on Facebook. Tagging has been a problem until now. Thanks!

    If someone has a user id and you want to get their ID, go to the address bar – it will show something like http://www.facebook.com/sandy
    Replace www with ‘graph’ and press enter

    • jen says:

      hi! thanks for that info! Although it was a bit tasky looking for their profile IDs, still it was really helpful, especially the ‘graph’ thing if the profile or user id isn’t available and the person is already using his customized url or his username. Thanks a lot! :))
