What Does Emotional Tag Rate Mean?

Think of Emotional Tag Rate as another way to measure post virality and shareability. @ tagging other users on social platforms is a way to loop them into a conversation. This is a behavior widely seen across many social platforms, but this behavior is especially prevalent on Facebook and Instagram. 

Notably for Instagram, which does not have a publically visible method of sharing posts, @ tagging other users is the primary way to share a post publically with friends.
