The Biggest Nuisance on Facebook – Photo Tags
Photo tagging applications are a problem on Facebook because they can fill your personal photo album with pictures of cartoon characters, collages, horoscopes, etc., with odd-looking eyes. Here are some privacy settings that are meant to keep the photos tagged with your Facebook profile.
If you have not logged into your Facebook account for a while, then I suggest that you do this now. Once you log in, click on the “Photos” tab on your Facebook profile and what you see can surprise you.
This is your own personal photo album on Facebook, but none of these funny-funny cartoon characters, horoscope charts, photo collages, friend photographs etc. have not uploaded any photos of you.
Photo tagging apps can do on your Facebook profile
Criminals, as you can guess, these are Facebook applications that tag random images with your name and the tagged image shows in your Facebook profile page without doing anything to you.
What’s the problem?
These “collages” not only make your Facebook profile very unprofessional, but there is more to worry about it.
Some photo tagging applications on Facebook (as shown below) add links to bad sites in your “Your” pictures and your innocent Facebook friends, who are just browsing your pictures randomly, may fall.
What can you do?
The simplest way is to remove your name tag from the tagged photo and it will also be removed immediately from your Facebook photo album.
Next you should find the Facebook app that you used to do earlier, put that photo collage in the first place and block that application forever, so that your other friends will be able to spam your Facebook profile page. Be unable to use.
Also, make sure you receive notifications every time a person tags you in a photo. You can control this setting from the “Notifications” tab on the Account Settings page.
Photo tagging is one of the most popular features on Facebook and, perhaps for this reason, Facebook does not offer a simple setting that will prevent other users and applications from tagging you in photos. Although you can hide “Photos tagged by you” from the Privacy page so that the images do not appear in your public photos album and only visible to you.
And as a precautionary measure, go to authorized app pages to make sure that you do not authorize any Facebook app to tag images of other people on your behalf. If you find one, click on the cross to permanently delete that Facebook app from your profile.
What can Facebook do?
When you are tagged in a photo by your friends (or the Facebook app), the tag is automatically approved and the picture appears in your profile. That’s why we all need an additional privacy setting, which allows us to approve the tag before we see a tagged photo on our profile page.
Facebook has not allowed developers to add apps to your profile without your permission, then why they allow them to add images to your profile without asking.
