How To Disable Tagging In Facebook Timeline

Facebook fake likes

Many people tag in their photos for getting more likes on Facebook, but sometimes they become too much irritating and annoying. A clean Facebook timeline looks much better than a messy Facebook timeline with tagged posts. In this guide we’ll talk about disabling timeline tagging. After disabling the tagging, people’s will be able to tag you in their photos but the posts will not be shown on your timeline. Every time a user tags you in a photo, status, then you will be asked to review the post, and then its all upon you. If you think the post may be related to you then allow it, either don’t allow it on your timeline.
