How to remove yourself from a post they tag you in

Being tagged on Facebook can annoy sometimes, especially when people get to tag you on irrelevant and unnecessary things and this can be disturbing. You need not worry as I will put you through guides that can help you limit or control the tags whether or not you’re online, just follow the tips below:

How to limit who can see photos or posts you are tagged in

If you don’t want everybody to see posts you are being tagged in, or you want to limit the audience that may be engaged in your timeline, then you can follow the guide below:

  • Go to privacy settings page and click on timeline and tagging option.
  • To review posts friends tag you in before they show up on your timeline, click on yes. With this setting enabled, it will notify you when you are tagged and can choose whether an individual tag will show up on your timeline.
  • Your choices here are standard, just go to settings and adjust it to either everyone, friends, friends of friends, custom or the only my option. This is the most private option as your friends will not see posts that they tag you in.

  • Also, you can tag on Facebook for feedback
  • The more you tag on Facebook, the more comment and shares you get and more people get to see your posts as well.
