Facebook Gives Users Right To Say No To Photo Tagging [Headlines]

Facebook is launching it's new feature to give you more privacy---the right to reject or accept a photo tag before it goes live.

Facebook has moved to address one of its biggest privacy challenges by finally giving users more control over photos tagged and shared on their profile.

Facebook users could previously be tagged in any pictures uploaded by their friends to the biggest photo-sharing site on the web, which hosts an estimated 100bn photos.

Acknowledging one of the most common requests from users, one of a new swath of feature improvements being rolled out by the site in the next few days a new drop-down menu will now allow users to request their friend remove the photo or even block that friend. Users will also be able to chose to approve or reject any photo they are tagged in before it goes live. Jemina Kiss/The Guardian.
