Have you checked out your Facebook “Photos of Me” lately? Did you know that if your friends take a photo, post it on their page, and tag you as in it (whether or not you really are) that’s where it lands? Any of your friends that have access to your photos will be able to see these photos of “you”.
I recommend anytime you post a photo to Facebook, organize into folders, or take a look at what you have that you should do a little housekeeping and look at all the photos that have been tagged with your name in them. The last thing you want to see is a horrible shot, a kegger photo, or something that doesn’t live up to your standards.
If you spot a photo in that section that you want to untag, click on the photo, find your name in blue below it, click on “remove tag”. Done! Do this regularly and spot any odd photos posted to Facebook by others.
You are your brand. Take control of what’s out there with your name on it!
This is a really awesome post… If you’d be willing to consider writing a contributory post on my non-profit’s blog write me an email.
Great post Kerry. It is really easy to get lazy about this and album permissions… a useful reminder, thanks!
Thanks for the comment, Veronica. I’m glad to post it. I’m the sober driver at the party when it comes to this stuff.
