Get Rid Of unwanted Photo Tags on Facebook

Somedays ago Facebook introduced a new feature to control and review the posts on Timeline. Timeline Review controls whether you have to manually approve posts you're tagged in before they go on your timeline. When you have a post to review, the Needs Review tab will appear on your timeline. This feature is Disabled by default and you have to Enable it. By Enabling this feature you will get an option to approve/disapprove posts you're tagged in before they go on your timeline.

 

You can Enable This Option by few simple steps:

  1. Go to your Facebook Privacy Settings
