How to add a tag and flair on Reddit?
Using a tag and/or flair on your post is normal on Reddit because it allows others to understand the type of your post. For example, if your post has an NSFW tag, you are telling others not to open the post while working.
Or, if your post has a flair name discussion, that means you want others to speak out about their experiences on your post. To be a good Redditor, you must know the proper usage of tags and flairs.
Tags and Flairs are not mutually exclusive, which means you can use a tag and a flair in the same post. However, there are only three tags on Reddit, OC, NSFW, and Spoiler. On the other hand, subreddit owners can create flairs according to the type of their subreddits.
Note: Some subreddits may require adding a flair to submit a post. But the tag is optional because you can submit various posts that don’t fall under any specific tag.
Add a tag or flair on the Reddit app
- Open the Reddit app on your smartphone.

- Click on Submit a new link or Submit a new text post.

Make sure to use proper flair and tags. If you use the wrong tags or flair, community members will report your post, and moderators may remove your post altogether.
