add a way to 'tag' or 'mention' people in Facebook posts.
When creating a social media post for Facebook, Facebook requires you type the @ symbol and then start typing the individual or organization you want to tag and then select from the list of individual/organizations that you like. Unfortunately there is no way to do that using HubSpot because HubSpot is not directly linked to your Facebook in the manner. It would be extremely beneficial to have that tool for social media posting. If this tool was available we would use HubSpot for all our social media posts but unfortunately we cannot at this time because we need to tag and mention many of the companies and organizations we partner with in our posts.
Unfortunately, there is no API access available to third parties for tagging people when posting to Facebook. We will revisit this when API access is available.

this is a MAJOR bummer for posting

Has there been any updates to this as of late? It is a key strategy for us.
That is a shame, as tagging is a key strategy to gain more engagement.
This is available on Sprout Social posts for facebook pages. http://sproutsocial.com/insights/tag-facebook-pages-from-sprout/
Is this something that will be rolled out on HubSpot soon?

What about tagging other pages? I use other social publishing tools that recently have integrated this and a huge help so we don't have to post through Hubspot, then actually go into FB to edit the post to add the Page tag.

We have 78 Facebook pages for our company so it would be SUPER helpful if Facebook let us do this!

Great discussion. I am working on this now, so I am sharing my updated info. Hope this link helps...

Hurry up guys!!
When using the scheduler, would love to have the ability to tag certain people we are highlighting in the post/tag them in a picture.
Thanks for your feedback! Unfortunately this is something that is not currently supported by Facebook's API, which is why we're unable to support it in the Hubspot Social tool. We know that this would be a useful feature, and as soon as they change their API to allow it, we will add it to our product backlog.

Has this feature been added? It looks like this is a relatively old post so I wanted to revisit it. This is a critical feature for us to be able to post through HubSpot for Facebook as well.
I completely agree! Along with geolocation, FB Page links in the text and photo tagging for pages! Not having to log into Facebook and being able to complete the entire thing for auto-publishing would be fantastic!
Would love to see this feature added!

any update or ETA on this?
Heather B commented
Yes! Definitely need this feature to be available as soon as possible. Not being able to tag within the scheduling function sets back our ability to get ahead on a lot of posts, and does not allow for optimal tracking of posts because we have to post these directly through Facebook, in real time.
We are unable to provide a concrete ETA at this time. It is in our product backlog, and we do intend to support this.
