Do you unnecessarily get tagged on photos on Facebook? Its quite annoying to see photos I am not in or know anything about appearing on my Facebook wall because I was tagged on it by a friend. Some of the photos are disturbing in nature, some are quite pornographic. Facebook allows tagging of friends on photos, videos, places and posts. It is ok if the tagging is meaningful but very annoying when it is unnecessary. You can’t block your friends because they tagged you on photos of course.

So I am going to show you how you can avoid being tagged on Facebook photos and how you can avoid the unnecessary notifications about others comments on such photos.
