Facebook is taking product sales to its next level, by letting business owners to tag actual products on images, videos and other posts as confirmed by Business Insider
According to the information, when a product is tagged in any of the posts/image/video, users can engage with it by clicking on the tag and reading further information about the product on a new dedicated page.
According to the company statement, the new feature which is currently in testing, will enable product savvy to organically reach out to more people. “Organically” might intend that Facebook is currently not on any new plans to monetize on this feature.
