Own your Facebook Profile - Don't tag me!

We've all tag someone and someone have tagged us in one, two many times - sometimes, we are culprit of tagging someone inappropriately as well as people tagging us as well.

You want to stop people from tagging you on Facebook, don't worry, we'll work you through how you can manage your privacy settings on status.




Facebook has a feature that allows Users' to tag friends on photo they took but some people would tag you in pictures that doesn't concern you.

Recently, I visited a friend Facebook profile to check out his latest post that I might have missed, guess what, I did not see any of his posts on the first page. it was so annoying that I had to scan through all the pictures and posts of other people who have tagged him in 'unnecessary' conversations and pictures that doesn't concern him and he left it.

Imagine, if I wanted to give him a job and I needed to see some of his activies on Facebook, that';s how he would have lost his chance and I know that is how almost 70% of Facebooks profiles are - post from other people dominates in your profile - OWN YOUR PROFILE.

In other for you to OWN YOUR FACEBOOK PROFILE, We can show you how to remove undesirable photo tags, and more importantly, how to tweak your Facebook privacy settings to make sure an unapproved photo tag never appears on your Timeline ever again.

We would suggest you don't restrict people from tagging you but approve whatever you want to display on your timeline and hide others that are not relevant.

Let us know in the comments about any Facebook photo tag horror stories you've experienced!
