By Bree | 16th Nov 2015 | Posted in Quickies

We’ve created a series of bite-sized blog posts just long enough to give you the downlow on all kinds of digital wizardry, because we love sharing our knowledge and know-how. Get tips for improving your social media efforts, discover powerful PR tricks, and learn all kinds of hacks to make your work life easier. Here is our super quick tip of the week.


Just like Facebook, Instagram gives you the option to tag multiple other accounts in your photos! There are two ways you can tag a friend in a photo, this can be before you post or after.


Tagging other companies starts conversations and creates links between you and many others. If you really want to see how social someone is, just tap on their tagged photos!


  1. Search for the person you’d like to tag in the photo by entering their user name. Press the magnifying glass icon on the keypad to initiate the search.
  2. Tap the location you’d like to add the tag to.
  3. Once you’ve uploaded the image and you’re on the caption page, you can tap the “Tag People” button under the image.
  4. Finish by tapping the blue tick on the top right of the image.

To tag people in photos you’ve already posted:

  1. Find the photo you want to post in your gallery
  2. Tap the three dots below the photo.
  3. Click Edit.
  4. Click tag people on the bottom left of the photo.
  5. Choose a location in the photo to tag, i.e. their face.
  6. Search for the user by typing their user name into the search bar.
  7. Finish by tapping the blue tick on the top right of the image.
