  1. Hi! Its a very useful and nice piece of information. It actually gets really annoying when someone unnecessarily tags you for no good reason. The problem is some people don’t have sense about the technology for they have been given in their hands. It is a kind of moral hazard where some people enjoy in doing such things. Thanks a lot. At least this info can save me from getting tagged, any further, for no reason.

  2. This is completely useless. We all know how to keep tags off of our own timelines, what we need to know is how to stop people from tagging us because our info, images and profiles are distributed to all of *their* friends. Does blocking that person make their tags go away?

    • Hi Jennifer,

      Unfortunately for now, there is no way you can block anyone from tagging you on Facebook. We hope that Facebook will include that feature in future. The benefit of this post is that you will control the image or post from going viral on Facebook and from showing on your timeline.
