It's more eyeball rolling than offence.

And for once we agree... you can't afford me :)

Thanks EV!

(SMS and JR8, I would thank you too except it seems talking to you would make me a technical SPG. So I have to deprive you of my scintillating company. Poor things, you did nothing wrong... your only fault is that you're expats.)

Then ICA is technically also a SPG. World is so confusing nowadays.

SPG-logic for sure :) x

It used to be that if anyone Tagged you in a photo, then that photo went on your publicly searchable Profile page. And you had no way of making it private or getting it off apart from asking the tagger to de-tag you, which goes against the <jolly> 'spirit of fun and sharing!!' </jolly> that is Facebook.




Edit to add correction: It now appears that you are able to untag yourself from photos. So I have just done precisely this with over 100 tagged pix of me!

Thanks KSL, I think it fair to say that Facebook are just egregious pornographers of people's private information. I don't think it OTT describing them as practitioners of corporate evil.

Un-tagging has always been there, I've done it with some less-than-photogenic shots of me over a year ago

Well, I am talking about the time when your friends tag you, till you log on to FB to un tag yourself, that short or long duration, might expose some "interesting" photos. So must be careful when your FB friends take a photo of you...
