Want to make an important announcement for everyone in your community but don’t know how to tag everyone in a Facebook group post?
In this blog, we’ll tell you the step-wise process for it.
For those who don’t know, in 2022, Meta introduced a new @everyone feature allowing Facebook group admins and moderators to tag everyone in a group on Facebook.
When you choose to tag @everyone, every member of your Facebook group will get a notification saying they’ve been tagged in a group post.
IMO, it’s an amazing feature and comes handy whenever you want to make an important announcement or share crucial updates or information about events, contests, and more with your community members.
However, make sure to not overuse it and use it sparingly as there is a high chance that members might get annoyed and leave the group altogether. Consider the several groups they’re a part of and admins of each of those groups using it on a regular basis!
The ideal way to use it is for making important announcements ONLY.

Also, please note that this feature is available to use only ONCE in a day.

How to tag everyone in a Facebook group not working? Here’s what to do
If you are worried that the @everyone tag is not working in your Facebook group, please don’t worry! This feature is relatively new and is still being tested by Facebook. So, it might be that your group doesn’t have it yet. It might be rolled out in your Facebook group sooner or later.
Also, please do remember that if you are a group member, you cannot use @everyone because this feature is exclusive to group admins and moderators only.
Plus, you cannot use “@everyone” in an old post. The tag will only work on the posts made after the feature’s release.
That’s all about it.
Do try out the feature in your Facebook groups and let me know how it worked for you.
