Tagging, mentioning, @ing… call it what you will, interacting with other people by including them in your posts is fundamental to the way social media works, but following a couple of best practices and social etiquette is key.

Who Should You Tag or Not Tag?

Who you tag on social media varies between posts and depends on the content. The most important part is that the accounts you tag are relevant! Do not tag people just to get them to look at your post. If you tag a ton of accounts this comes across as spam. Most likely that person will unfollow you or block your account if it gets to be overwhelming. In some cases your account can get suspended completely if you're spamming mentions.
