Facebook Privacy Settings: Change privacy settings for tagged photos
Facebook is a wonderful social networking platform that allows you to constantly be in touch with your family and friends, irrespective of the physical and geographical differences. You can maintain the proximity through your posts (texts) or by uploading photos of your day-to-day life. Similarly, your family members and friends can include you in their photos by tagging you. However, it is up to you whether or not you would allow these images to appear on your timeline so that all your contacts can view it as well. An inappropriate image, an intimate picture, or a picture of some very personal event may not be the usual thing you would want your business associates or co-workers at workplace to know of.
To prevent the broadcast of such images, you can easily change the privacy settings for tagged photos in your Facebook account
- Login with your Facebook account.
- Click the arrow at the top right corner of the window and then click on “Privacy Settings” from the drop down menu.
- Click “Edit Settings” in the ‘How tags work’ section.
- Click the drop down for ‘Maximum Profile Visibility’ and choose “Custom” from the drop down list.
- You can change the settings to “Only me” if you want it that way.
- Click on “Save Changes” and then click on “Done”.
By setting your own privacy protocols, you can easily define the broadcasting of tagged images on your Facebook account. Certainly, not all posts or images are meant to be shared with every contact on your Friends list; why should you not prevent it as per your preference and security view?
