With the latest automatic update on my Samsung GalaxyS10, I am no longer able to tag friends on Facebook. I can still tag them on my laptop, so this is definitely an issue on my android. I checked with my service provider (TMobile) and they had no answers. Thanks for any insights.
Your provider has nothing to do with this.

Your issue is with allowing automatic updates.

It is up to you to read reviews before any update takes place, as this is the only way to know if there are problems with updates.

Where did you get the update from?
Google will not provide older versions of apps.

Most other app stores will.

I can guide you in the way to return the app to a previous edition, or else you can use your browser to use social media until (maybe) the next update returns the function(s).

A browser is the recommended way to access any social media anyway.
Try clearing the cache for the app and see if that helps.

If not, clear the data for it and try again.

If nothing helps, then restart (not reset!) the device and try once more.

Otherwise, you can revert to an older version of the app or use a browser.

Also, there are wrapper apps that you may like, and they are much more secure than the standard app.

Thanks for the quick response. I wasn't clear in my post - this wasn't a Facebook update. The only changes to my T Mobile Galaxy 10 android was the automatic software update. I get them quite regularly and can't opt out but do keep hitting the button to schedule the update for a later time. It eventually does the update on its own.

What app were you actually using to tag friends, the Facebook app, or something else?

This is something I've never seen myself, although I ceased using FB a while ago now for various reasons.

You can opt out of these pestilence updates.

Open Developer options and turn off Automatic system updates.

This has worked on all but the very worst of my devices.
