Tags on Public make it easier to discover people and ideas in the app! You can now add and search Tags within posts.

How do Tags work?

Tags basically are a label for content. They let you explore posts with a common theme. You can also add them to your own posts to draw attention, promote, and connect.

How to use Tags in the app:

  1. Add Tags to your posts by tapping "Add Tag" at the bottom of your post or typing a hashtag directly into your post!

  2. Search Tags in the Explore tab OR click a Tag directly from a post to see all of the posts that use that Tag in chronological order!

Tags Tips:

  • They always start with # but they won’t work if you use spaces, punctuation, or symbols.

  • Don’t string too many words together. The best Tags tend to be relatively short and easy to remember.

  • Use relevant and specific Tags. If it is too obscure, it will be hard to find and it won’t likely be used by other members.

  • Limit the number of Tags you use. You are limited to 30 Tags per post, but less is usually more.
