Who can tag me and how do I know if someone tags me on Facebook?
Anyone can tag you in photos and other posts. Tags from people you're not friends with may appear in your timeline review, where you can decide if you want to allow them on your timeline. Remember, posts you choose not to allow on your timeline may appear in News Feed and elsewhere on Facebook.
Depending on your settings, you'll receive a notification when someone tags you. You can choose what notifications you receive about tags from your settings:
  1. Click at the top right of any Facebook page and select Settings.
  2. Click Notifications from the left side.
  3. Click Edit next to the On Facebook section.
  4. Next to Tags, select what audience you want to receive notifications from.
You can also choose to review photos friends tag you in before they appear on your timeline by turning on timeline review.
If you don't like something you're tagged in, you can remove the tag or ask the person who tagged you to remove the post.
