How to Stop People from Tagging you in Photos on FB

This is a major pitfall of Facebook as there is no setting to automatically stop people from doing this. There is nothing like going out on the razz and then finding your face plastered (in all senses) all over FB for the world to see, including family, spouses and possibly future employers!

You can untag each photo individually but I have better things to do than go searching for them all. Plus, I don’t want to offend the person who tagged me in the first place.

The only solution I found was to limit who can see the tags to ‘just you’. Try this and let me know if it works and if you know a better way do let me know!

Thanks for this, I've been looking for a way to do this for a while. It's not great to think that anyone can post any random photo up on FB about you. Great advice!

i went online to check my facebook account and profile and found they have been disabled because i was targetted in photos involving people having sex. why i'm i punished for something i didnt do and yet the person who did it without my knowledge or consent can get away with it. i know have to wait for facebook appeals to decide whether or not to reactivate my profile and this person gets to keep theres, its not fair and its not right.

so there isn't any automated solution for Tag Me Not?

The only downfall we can see is if you are tagged in a photo with a few people?? Not sure how it would work. I assume that people will still be able to see the photo but won't be able to search for it?
