Hi,

I'm trying to find a solution to being able to tag pictures that are not in FB but still have theel newsfeed item appear in the appropriate FB feeds.

Below is a brief projects summary I wrote:

The purpose of this project is for Facebook users to be able to tag pictures outside of FB but still have the activity of tagging still show up in their newsfeed.

1)      User “John” goes to www.foo.com and browses through a photo album and finds a  picture of himself or a friend
2)      John clicks on the picture at foo.com and a tagging interface, similar to FB, appears and he is able to select an area on the picture to tag.  A list of his FB friends also appears so that he can choose which person he is tagging.  John picks his friend Mary to tag and tags the picture.
3)      After John is finished tagging, newsfeed item appears to all of Mary’s friends on FB that she has been tagged.  This is normally what happens when a person is tagged by default.  All of their friends are notified via the newsfeed.

Any relevant resources you can provide would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks.

Hello DanSoto,

I have been looking for this exact same thing for ages and I just came across your post. I'm really really hoping that your solution is working out for you. I checked out that software but it doesn't make it clear that it allows you to tag your facebook friends.  

Does this software let you chose from yuor list of facebook friends, and then will it show on their news feed after they are tagged?  Your help is much appreciated. Thank you!
