Your friends are talking about you on Facebook. Or at least they are tagging you in posts, photos and comments. You probably get notifications when this happens, but you might not catch all of them. There’s a quick way to see where your name is coming on the site. First, select the little gear symbol in the upper right of your Facebook page.
Select “Privacy Settings” from the drop-down menu.
Under “Privacy Settings and Tools,” pick “Review all your posts and things you’re tagged in.”
You’ll get a list of links, photos, statuses and comments where you are mentioned.
This is useful tool for a variety of reasons. First, you won’t miss photos or messages from friends that you might have overlooked. Around the holidays, I was tagged in so many family photos that it was nearly impossible to keep up with them. This is also a great way to look out for spam that you might have been tagged in. You can also remove your name from unflattering or embarrassing photos. Untagging yourself won’t delete the photo, but at least it won’t turn up when people are searching for photos of you. If you have a friend that tags you in something he thinks is funny, but you find inappropriate, you can take your name out of it.
