Facebook Timeline is a nice feature, but i think there is a flaw in Timeline and Tagging feature.

As I have on this feature and I can see here:

Privacy Setting-->Timeline and Tagging

     Review tags friends add to your own posts on Facebook is ON

Now whenever someone tags me in a photo, I get a notification (this is okay) to Approve it and redirects me to the Activity Log


even if I disapprove the tag, I get tagged on that Photo! and I continue receiving notifications related to the Photo.

Current Solution:

Go to the Tagged Photo

  • Click on Report/Remove tag -then it again ask some questions.

  • And also unfollow post

But is there any other way.

  • @Rishabh Thanks for editing and answer too

That feature only decides if the tagged post or picture is going to appear on your timeline or not. It does not remove your tag if you disapprove it.
