Facebook’s Tagging Review Walkthrough

I started experimenting with the new Facebook privacy settings this evening.  I played with the tagging setting that allows the user to review and approve or block any post or image they’re tagged in prior to it showing on their wall.  There are a few concerns I have at present regarding how effective the process is in maintaining privacy (they’ll be discussed in another post), but I wanted to show the process.

When I was tagged by a friend, I did receive a notification that I was tagged, but did not get an email telling me to review the post.  The itself notification was pretty straight forward:

Once the notification cleared I went back to my profile.  Under my profile picture the notification showed up as a pending approval in the menu bar under “wall”.

Clicking on the pending tab provided the option to approve or deny the post.  I would have liked to see a 3rd and 4th option – to always approve or deny tags from certain people.  With Facebook moving to allow tagging of people regardless of friendship status, the possibility for spam increases and this would be a handy feature.

WHO AM I? The work me: A writer, social media consultant, educator and public speaker. I work with solopreneurs and small to midsized businesses helping them effectively use content and social media marketing to build relationships, improve brand awareness, drive web traffic, improve SEO and generate leads through an organic process. What I teach, implement and speak on has its roots in traditional, old-school networking and cold calling. My techniques have been developed over a decade of building my personal brands through social media and relationships. I focus on a relationship based approach. That content is less important and plays a supportive role. That business, long-term, repeatable and sustainable business, is driven by relationships. Whether your business or organization is business-to-business or business-to-consumer, for profit or not for profit or service-based or retail-based, the principles I teach are highly effective and get real results. The real me: An avid sea kayaker, adventure seeker, and fisherman. I take full advantage of living on the water at Salmon Beach off the west side of Point Defiance Park in Tacoma’s North End. I spend as much time paddling as I do working. When not on the water, you can find me fishing off the deck, hiking, camping or otherwise exploring the PNW. I'll spend my downtime with friends, my children or simply having my feet up on the couch. The volunteer me: I teach LinkedIn classes at Joint Base Lewis McChord to help those transitioning to civilian life and am a kayak fishing guide for Heroes On The Water's Northwest Chapter. HON helps military veterans & their families relax, rehabilitate and reintegrate through kayak fishing.
