Facebook: Tagged on Shoe Photos?

So, have you recently seen the vast amount of "shoes" that you and/or your friends are being tagged?  Did you really want your name associated with these advertisements and how can you stop them?

The first thing to do is to change the settings on your Facebook account so you are allowed to accept or reject when you have been tagged in a photograph.

There are also some scamming apps out there so be aware of the applications that request access to your Facebook account.

Access the your FB
account privacy settings.
  1.  Go to your account by going to the dropdown arrow next to "Home", at the top of Facebook.  (See image)
  2. Select "Privacy Settings".
  3. Select "Edit Settings" to the right of "Timeline and Tagging".
  4. Enable the setting for "Review posts friends tag you in before they appear on your timeline"
  5. Click the back button and then the done button.
  6. You can now leave the privacy settings area by clicking on the Facebook logo on the top left. 

You may still see shoe ads on your friends wall, but now you can be spared from tags that promote glowing shoes on your own Facebook account.  ☺

Facebook and Recipes, Lots of Recipes!

So, I do enjoy recipes and they are a harmless collection, but more and more recipes are showing up on FB. My son says it is because all the "old" folks showed up on FB, but I say that old and young can share the platform, but I digress. You find this great recipe posted on Facebook (Or Pinterest) and decide you want to keep it, so you post it on your wall so you can find it again.. but wait.. it isn't alphabetical, you can't even search for it, so that recipe you want to use is now listed 10 miles down your timeline somewhere under 2011. Honestly, there are better ways and I would love to hear your suggestions. This is what I do. I use my Evernote program to save the document. There is a cute link on my browser navigation (featuring an elephant) at the top of my browser. I highlight the text of the recipe, click the elephant button and Evernote Web Clipper pops up. I have a category all set for Recipes and click the Clip selection button. I am done. When I wa
