A Facebook tagging problem has

“A friend asked this question and I didn’t know what to tell them: “I posted something yesterday and this guy just tagged himself in it. I blocked him but I had to delete the whole thing. I couldn’t figure out how to untag him.”

If it’s a photo you uploaded or a post that made, just click the three-dot menu button at the top right of the post.

Choose Edit post from the drop-down menu.

Click on Tag Friends.

The names of people tagged in the post will appear in the With box. Hover over the name of the person you wish to remove and click the X.

Remember, this works to remove someone from your post. If you’ve shared someone else’s post that the person is tagged in, that person will still be tagged in that post. The best way to control this issue is to make sure your settings do not allow other people to tag themselves without your permission. I’ll show you how to handle that tomorrow.
