I know that Tagging in Facebook posts broken because of the cambridge analytica meltdown. I want to know what users are doing to get around this inability that really is important. Are people just doing the tagging manually on facebook?

It's not ideal but in my own social media, I schedule posts and will go to the post after publishing (sometimes even a day or so later if I am busy) and manually add the tags. I don't myself know of an easier way around this, so if others do, I'd be very interested. 

 

The tags are still important and do boost visibility for the post, so it's worth adding them, even after the fact.

That's been our workaround as well. Not ideal, but at least it's so easy to edit posts after-the-fact on Facebook.

Thanks for the brainstorm! Looks like manual editing after the fact is the best we can do until facebook and the marketing industry can figure out a reasonable compromise.

Yes - for the past couple months I've just been manuall posting on Facebook, but still scheduling through Hubspot on all other social media pages. It's not idea but since I schedule the others it doesn't take too much longer.
