What are tagging and sharing?

Sharing is one of the core features of social media. It usually requires just a couple of clicks. Another form of sharing a post is to tag connections in the comments.

Most social platforms allow users to link other users to the post to draw their attention to it. This method doesn’t share the post as widely, but people are more likely to see the post.

Users share posts because they think they are relevant to people in their network, funny or interesting - and they often want to be known as the first to share it.
