Facebook settings to review photo tagging

FacebookThe Online Mom has a great post with a cautionary tale and information about how photo tagging works in “today’s” Facebook and why you might want to change the settings. Did you know that you can set your account to allow you to review tags on photos before they go live onto your timeline? Good info to have.

Her instructions:

Here’s how you can enable tag screening before images (and other posts) appear on your Timeline:

  • Go to your Timeline and click on the arrow next to Activity Log.
  • Select Timeline Settings.
  • Under Who can add things to my timeline? go to Review posts friends tag you in before they appear on your timeline? and click on Edit.
  • Select Enabled and close the window. Make sure that the review setting now says On.

Enabling tag review will allow you to manually approve posts you’re tagged in before they appear on your Timeline.

Simple and easy to follow. Check out The Online Mom’s site. I subscribe to her RSS feed because I pick up a lot of useful hints, tricks and tips from it.
