A tag links a person, page, or place to something you post, like a status update or a photo. When Facebook introduces tagging feature, users got a chance to tag photos and videos to a friend’s timeline. In general, It helps keep in touch among a circle of friends.
It is also vital to those who are promoting their products by sharing them with their friends through tagging. But tagging photos, videos, or products that you don’t like is quite annoying when you see your timeline.
In this tutorial, you will learn how to turn on tag review, which you can control and review the tagged photos, videos, etc. that are shared or posted on your timeline.
Tag review is an option that lets you approve or dismiss tags that people added to your posts. When you turn it on, any time someone tags you in their post, that tag won’t appear on your timeline until you approve it.
