How Does Tag Function Work?
Tagging is a special type of link. When you tag someone, you create a link in timeline on user profile page. The post you tagged, can also be added to the person’s timeline. For example, you can tag a status update to tell who you’re doing the photo or to tell who you’re doing something with to show who’s in a photo. If you tag a friend on Facebook in your status update, anyone who sees the update can click on your friend’s name to go to the timeline. You can also show your status update in your friend’s timeline. You can also tag people who aren’t your friends. Facebook allows it.

I Cannot Tag Friends. What is Solution?
If you can’t tag someone you want to tag on Facebook, it’s due to that person’s privacy settings. Because some users do not like this kind of activity and do not want to be in pictures or videos. That’s why the privacy settings may have chosen “No one can tag me.” If he/she has a choice, you can’t tag! There is no solution for this. Because privacy is very important to every user. If he-she doesn’t want it, there’s no point in insisting. Leave them alone and enjoy Facebook!
Tag on Photo
