How to Mention (Tag) Accounts in Your Posts?

At times, it may be necessary to mention or tag other social accounts in your posts in order to increase their visibility or establish a direct connection with them. Whether it’s for Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or LinkedIn, this help page will guide you through the process of adding mentions (tags) in your posts.

1. Facebook Page Mentions

When scheduling a post to be shared on a Facebook page, you can mention other Facebook pages within your post. To mention a Facebook page, follow these steps:

  • Type the “@” symbol in your post.
  • Start typing the first few letters of the Facebook page’s name and then matching results will appear
  • You can select the desired page from the search results.

Suggestion✍️: If the page name contains spaces, please use underscores to replace the spaces. For example, Page name is “Cristiano Ronaldo” then it can be typed as “Cristiano_Ronaldo” to improve search results or simply copy the username from the URL of the page like “Cristiano” and paste it to find the page.

2. Twitter Mentions

To mention a Twitter profile in your tweet, follow these steps:

  • Type the “@” symbol in your tweet.
  • Start typing the first few letters of the Twitter account’s handle and matching results will be displayed.
  • You can select the account you want to mention.
  • If you do not see the profile then please make sure that you are entering the exact username as it is on Twitter.

3. LinkedIn Mentions

To mention a LinkedIn page in your post, follow these steps:

  • Type the “@” symbol in your post.
  • Start typing the first few letters of the LinkedIn page and matching results will be displayed.
  • You can select the account you want to mention.
  • If you do not see the LinkedIn page then please enter the username that you see in the URL of the LinkedIn account which you want to tag.

Note: It is not possible to mention LinkedIn Profiles or Groups due to LinkedIn’s API limitation and hence you can only tag LinkedIn Pages at the moment.

4. Instagram Mentions

Unfortunately, the mentions will not be pulled automatically when you start typing a few letters like the above accounts due to API limitations. Nevertheless, you can manually include mentions in your Instagram posts by directly typing the desired handle you wish to mention.

Once published to Instagram, the mentioned account will become hyperlinked.

Note: It is not possible to tag Instagram users in your caption with the search results using RecurPost at the moment due to Facebook’s API limitations.

In conclusion, tagging social media accounts in your posts can significantly boost engagement and visibility. By following the outlined steps for each platform, you can effectively mention relevant accounts, enhancing your social media strategy.
