    We can go to the "Timeline" section located here.
    Press down on "Timeline". This allows us to see all our photos in one place. If we're in the album section, we can only tag photos from one album at a time. This just allows us more freedom. Now we can see all our photos and it just allows us more possibilities where we can see a lot of our photos.
