backfeed person tags (especially on photos) to the original posts #488
On typical photo silos that you can POSSE to (Facebook, Flickr), in addition to liking & commenting your friends can tag people they know in those posts.
On Instagram, you can add person-tags to your photos after the fact as well as during posting.
Bridgy should backfeed these silo person-tagging interactions just as it backfeeds comments for reasons that are helpful to the publisher particularly for photos:

Bridgy can do this by creating synthetic tag-reply posts (similar to reply posts), with "tag-of" markup and person-tag "u-category h-card" markup as documented here:
And then send a webmention back to the original post like the existing Bridgy backfeed support.
If it's possible for Bridgy to figure out silo profile userid -> indieweb URL for each person-tag, that would be even better. A couple of thoughts:
This would be above and beyond just supporting backfeeding of person-tags, hence separate comment.
It might also be reasonable to put all the burden (freedom of choice) of converting a silo profile URL (e.g. FB/Flickr profile) to the indieweb equivalent. Capturing both possibilities here for consideration.

I think I disagree. Even if you @-reply to your own tweet, you get backfed the @-reply.
Similarly, if you person-tag your own POSSE copy of a photo, you should get backfed the tag-reply.
Unfortunately not. I'm not sure how to bootstrap this as a publisher.
