Facebook photo tagging Do you have friends/relatives who tag themselves on photos they don't appear in? [More:]I'm not really sure why they do this but it appears to be a way to keep the photo in their feed or something. I have a photo of two dogs, for example, and my niece tagged herself and her annoying mother (my ex-SIL) and on a personal note I don't want the latter connected to me any more than necessary, and on an esthetic note it offends me to have "inaccurate" tags. Am I alone here? Should I just nuke the tags?
This is weird. My family is generally very conventional, so I would find it hysterical if they tagged my pets as themselves. But in your situation - yes, I would nuke.

I've seen a couple of my friends do this, but I don't really get it. They're your photos, so nuke away! I'd see if you can adjust your settings so only you can tag your photos (if you want, that is).

Yeah, I've known friends to tag me in photos that they want me to see, even though I'm not in it. I've also known folks to tag themselves so that they can see the photo by looking at the "photos of me" link.

But yeah, they are yours...un-tag if you don't like it. FOR SURE.

I guess they tag them to include them in their profile, like as a way of showing their friends or something? I don't know. I wouldn't want that.

People can't tag me, muahahahaha!

Erm, yeah, nuke it.

My ex-stepdaughter is always doing this. She tags everything and anything she wants people to look at - it brings old photos back up to the front or something. It drives me mildly crazy but then I kind of shrug and say eh. I have removed a couple of her tags but then I felt guilty so now I just ignore her. Chances of me ever even using the tags to locate something are minuscule; I don't have a lot of pictures up on Facebook. If she was doing it to my flickr pictures, though, that would be WAR.
