Facebook question - what does it mean when "So and so commented on a post you were tagged in?

What does "tagged in mean"?
Who is Participating?
I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

That means someone was tagged in a photo.  If you post pictures you can tag the people that are in the photo so everyone knows who is who.  This will display their names on the photo and the picture will also show up on their facebook page since they are tagged.
It is also possible to type a name in a wall post, or when you are "checking in" to a location, and that is classed as tagging too.

Basically, tagging is including someone's name in a post, photo etc, and when prompted, selecting their facebook account.  This links the name you typed to the facebook account, and "tags" them.

tagged in means

When you get this type of Notification from Facebook, it means that someone (of your friends) has mentioned you in their Comment, Photo, Links, Video, etc.

Mentioning your name means, someone really wanted to see that post by you as soon as possible. So facebook gives some Priority in Notification and showing you the tagged post. If you set your notification setting notified by Email then facebook send you Email notification.
