Facebook profile tags coming soon

Facebook is Testing LinkedIn-Inspired Profile Tags

The testing phase is limited to New Zealand at the moment.

It seems that Mark Zuckerberg was really impressed with the profile tags on LinkedIn and couldn’t resist introducing a similar feature on his own platform. The social media giant confirmed that it is testing LinkedIn–style profile tags.

If everything goes well in the testing phase, then you will be able to add tags to your profile. Not too sure what describes you or your interests? Not a problem, as the new feature will also allow your friends to add tags to your profile page, with your approval of course.

While LinkedIn allows its users to create a list of profile tags and other people are forced to select from that list only, Facebook is giving its users complete freedom to tag anything they want, whether it is a word, a phrase, or any emoji. You will be notified of the tag people want to add on your Timeline via Facebook notification.

There is no word on when this feature will be available to everyone yet.
