Stephen Colbert, 'The Colbert Report'Stephen Colbert is very excited about the possibilities in the new Facebook policy allowing you to tag brand-named products in your photographs. On 'The Colbert Report' (Weeknights, 11:30PM ET on Comedy Central) he laid out how you could turn this into a lucrative side business.

"Think of all the windfall you could reap from dropping products into your most precious life moments like weddings, births and funerals," he said while showing blatant product placement in sample photos.

What do you think of this new tagging tool being made available? If you tag your box of Wheaties to the cereal's page, for example, your picture will then appear there as well (if it's publicly available). Is this a great step forward, or something to worry about?
