So I got tagged in a post this morning…
The person who tagged me has only been a connection since yesterday and apparently the person has been tagging new connections in this particular post for weeks. Every new comment to the original post is someone’s name, and since it’s an activated tag, when hovered over the name, creates a link back to my profile.
Well, you might be saying, that’s how tags work.
They show info to the one tagged.
Yeah, the way this was done is nothing but spam.
Let me give you some tagging etiquette…
(1) your tag should highlight a connection between you and the person being tagged,
(2) a post should not contain individual tags in comments,
(3) there is no reason to tag a brand new connection (unless you have a preexisting relationship), and
(4) tagging people before even sending a hello message is downright rude and considered spamming
When the first thing you do after connecting with me is tagging me in your post, I will remove the tag, then remove you as a connection.
I don’t know who is teaching people this stuff, but they honestly need a kick in the jimmies.
