I don't want anyone to be able to tag me in posts.

It is quite an issue for me, as I am in animal rescue and people think I'll travel out of state to get dogs.

    Hi Tina, we're an independent website not affiliated with Facebook in any way. This was a bit of a rant, which isn't really helpful to anyone in the future, so I've molded it into a more constructive question that you can likely get an answer to. – jonsca Jan 26 '19 at 20:00

There is no way to stop getting tagged yourself. Anyone can tag you in photos and other posts. But you can review the tag before they appear on your timeline.

When a friend tags you in a post on Facebook, normally it automatically appears on your timeline. If someone you're not friends with tags you in a post, you'll be prompted to review it to appear on your timeline. Timeline Review lets you require all posts, including friends' posts, to be reviewed before appearing on your timeline.

To turn on Timeline Review or review your Timeline Review settings:

  1. Click down arrow icon at the top right of Facebook and select Settings.
  2. In the left column, click Timeline and Tagging.
  3. Look for the setting Review posts you're tagged in before the post appears on your timeline? and click Edit to the far right.
  4. Select Enabled or Disabled.
