Facebook had somewhat of a privacy overhaul in September 2011. One of the most welcome changes that users had been screaming for is the ability to approve tags before they are posted to their profile. The photo-tagging exploit has been abused by scammers on a grand scale! Follow these simple instructions to enable the feature and keep your Facebook account more secure.
1. Click “Account” at the top right of the page and then select “Privacy Settings.”
2. Locate “Timeline and Tagging” in the left column and click the link to “Edit Settings.”
3. Make sure that ‘Review posts friends tag you in before they appear on your timeline‘ is Enabled.
4. Click ‘Close‘.
5. Tell your Facebook friends to do the same.
