Facebook tests prompt asking users to tag photos in News Feed

Screen Shot 2013-08-03 at 3.01.13 PMFacebook appears to be testing a new way to tag friends in photos. Whenever a friend posts a photo of themselves, users see a prompt over the photo in News Feed asking if they’d like to tag.

Previously, a user could tag a friend in a photo after they’ve already clicked on it. This way, users can tag friends easily without leaving News Feed.

Naturally, the person in the photo can remove the tag or accept it. While the prompt to tag does not show up for every facial photo, it seems to usually show up whenever the user uploads a public picture featuring themselves to either Facebook or Instagram.
