A spam application has tagged me (and 5 others) within a comment on a random post on a friend's timeline.

How to remove the tag from that comment?

I don't want to untag myself from a picture or post, but from a comment.

There is no control to remove the tag, nor on the post itself (pic1) nor on the comment nor on my name (pic2). I was hoving the mouse on the expected places when taking the screenshots. I did not paste any white. I only pasted peppers, plus green (poster) blue (others) red (me).

You'll have to go to the comment in order to untag yourself.

  1. Go to the comment (either through notification or via the post for which the comment appears)
  2. Click on the edit icon in the uper right-hand corner
  3. Select Report/Remove Tag

I'm not sure why, but sometimes Remove will appear next to your name when in the comment, in that case (obviously) click remove.

Thanks but unfortunately, I see neither options. I added screenshots to show what I see. – nic Jun 27 '13 at 4:57
@NicolasRaoul And nothing when you hover on your name? Hmm...I tried it with a friend commenting me, but maybe it's different permissions. – batpigandme Jun 27 '13 at 8:59
The second screenshot shows what happens when I hover over my name. No modification icon appear, only a popup with my profile pic and cover photo. – nic Jun 27 '13 at 10:53
Very weird...I'll see what I can find out. – batpigandme Jun 27 '13 at 11:11
This reply is about untagging yourself in a post, not a comment. – Matthew Simoneau Jun 3 at 16:16
