Enable Facebook Tag Review

Do you find it annoying when people tag you weird places on Facebook? No? Well, some do, and here's a very quick walkthrough on how to limit the impact.

  1. Click the Gear icon at the top-right of your Facebook page.
  2. Click Settings in the drop-down menu.
  3. Click Timeline and Tagging in the menu to the left.
  4. In the Who can add things to my timeline? section, set the option Review posts friends tag you in before they appear on your timeline? to Enabled.
Voila! Now places or pictures you have been tagged in, will not appear on your timeline, until you have reviewed and approved the tag. You're still tagged, it's just not showing on your timeline. You'll still have to manually remove the tag, if you don't want the tag at all.
