Concerning Facebook’s New Profile Tags Feature and Therefore The Company Confirmed It Had Been Testing Them Out With The Subsequent Statement:
“Profile tags are an original tool that allows you to and your friends add tags to your profile to spotlight the items that describe you and what you’re into.”
Created as a part of an inside Facebook hackathon, the new feature can allow you to add tags to your own profile, or let your friends add tags for you, that you need to approve before they become in public visible. Tags are free-form, which suggests you’ll be able to sort in just about no matter you would like, even including emojis.
Just like LinkedIn, you’ll assign tags to yourself, or your friends will assign them at your approval. And being Facebook, you’ll produce no matter tag you want — you won’t have to pick from a set list. You can even use emoji — which can likely be the kicker.
How the tags can truly be used although, there is no word yet on when Facebook will start testing or rolling out the new profile tags elsewhere. According to Facebook, this feature is presently only being tested in New Zealand, with no word on when other countries would possibly get to take it.
