QUESTION

I've shared a video from YouTube to Facebook, and this has shown up ok on my wall.

Now I want to tag friends that are in the video, and can't see any option to do that. All the guides I see in places like this say that there should be a tag option to the lower right of the video, but I can't see that. Is this a feature we've lost in one of their updates, or has it just moved somewhere obscure?

ANSWER

Tagging is available only if you upload the video directly to Facebook—if you share the link, the video is fetched from YouTube, not Facebook so you can't tag them.

Might I suggest dropping a comment and doing an @Mention?
