Table of contents:
Instagram, that social network where more and more content is uploaded every day and in said content we can tag whoever we want, either in a post or in a Story.
But when it comes to tagging, Instagram imposes some limits that we have to take into account if we want our content to be published without problems. One of the limits is that we cannot tag more than 20 accounts in a publication, more than 20 accounts in a comment, and more than 20 accounts in a Story.
Tagging is very simple, in addition, Instagram is not limited to just one method, but rather it allows us to tag our friends in different ways, and we are going to learn all of them here:
Tag accounts in posts
If we want to upload a photo, be it a selfie, a landscape, a video made with Boomerang, a photo from a raffle, etc. we can tag up to 20 people and there are two ways to do it, or writing their name behind the @ (here we can tag more than 20 accounts but they can block us from publishing by spam), or using the option "Tag people"
Tag in Stories
This is one of the most used actions today, since Instagram Stories have gained ground at an almost unpredictable speed for the company.
Here we have it relatively easy and it is very intuitive, also, as in the previous section, there are also two ways to tag accounts in Instagram Stories.
On the one hand, we can write the name of that user after the @ and the available options appear automatically, or, we use the Mention sticker offered by Instagram which usually works much better than writing the mention ourselves.
In one way or another, we can tag more than 20 accounts, but as we say, this is not well seen in the eyes of Instagram.
Tag users in comments
Like the option to tag accounts in a photo or in Stories, we recommend not going overboard as the social network could brand us a spammer and not let us post the comment.
To tag users in comments, we just have to write an @ and user accounts automatically appearAs we type letters and complete the username we are looking for, the list is reduced until we find the one we wanted.
We have done the tests and we can tag more than 20, but as we say, it is not well seen by Instagram and they can even block our account.
And this is how we can tag on Instagram, in each and every one of its possibilities. Several ways, with the same objective: that our friend participate in a certain content.
