Hi I run a page on Facebook for my church of my Sunday school teacher created a group on his personal page for his class and added tags for the main church page...we thought the posts he made would show up on the church page but they are what does the tagging do
Expert:  Kris R replied 1 year ago.

Tagging a page will not show on that page unless it is shared.

This is a feature by design. I could show you If you like?

if you can answer it here ok, i dont want remote login or extra help for 19.00, is this possible?

Expert:  Kris R replied 1 year ago.

OK - the answer is it will not work. When tag someone on Facebook it shows up on their news feed that's fine but a page is totally different. It will not show up. Imagine I tagged McDonalds Fastfood,###-##-####people would be able to see it.

The only way to get this to show would be

  • The group is public
  • You share the post and other people in the group will see it (only people in the group)

This is the way it works for pages.

Expert:  Robert replied 1 year ago.

he would have to share the post TO the church group rather than tagging them in it.

this is relatively easy to do. on the top where it says post to facebook click on it and you will get options. one is "share to group"

select share to group and then select the group.
