The bad guys are exploiting the photo tagging feature to get facebook users to follow links to infected pages or other dubious deeds.
They generally post a picture and tag multiple people, including you, even though you are not in the picture. To combat this latest threat, you may want to consider a few changes to your privacy settings.
While the functionality of approving a photo tag before you are tagged is not available in facebook, you can follow the next steps to make it harder for others to tag you without your approval.
- Customize your privacy settings so that "Photos and videos I'm tagged in" is set to "Only Me."
- Set your notifications so that you always know when someone tags you in a photo or tags one of your photos. You can control this setting from the "Notifications" tab on the Account Settings page.
- Click "remove tag" when viewing the photo in which you are tag, and don't want to be.
