How do I review tags that people add to my posts before they appear?

Tag review is an option that lets you approve or dismiss tags that people add to your posts. When you turn it on, then anytime someone tags a photo or post you made, that tag won't appear until you approve it.

To turn on tag review:
  1. Click at the top right of any Facebook page and select Settings
  2. In the left-hand column, click Timeline and Tagging
  3. Look for the setting Review tags friends add to your own posts on Facebook? and click Edit to the far right
  4. Select Enabled from the dropdown menu

When tag review is on, you’ll get a notification when you have a post to review. You can approve or ignore the tag request by going to the content itself.

Remember: When you approve a tag, the person tagged and their friends may see your post. If you don't want your post to be visible to the friends of the person tagged, you can adjust this setting. Simply click on the audience selector next to the story, select Custom, and uncheck the Friends of those tagged and event guests box.
