How to get out of a post: You have been tagged incorrectly in a post by Facebook and want to remove your name from it? Do you want to prevent all posts where you are tagged from automatically being published in your diary in the future? So take five minutes of free time and try to put into practice the “tips” I am about to give you.

In no time at all, I assure you that you will learn how to get out of a post of Facebook and how to disable the automatic publication, in your diary, of messages and photos in which you are tagged. In this way, you will be in control of the mentions made to you and choose which ones to authorize based on your needs.

If you want to find out how to get out of a post of Facebook, the first move you need to make is to place the mouse cursor on the message in which you were mentioned, click on the arrow that appears at the top right and select the item Report / remove tags from the menu that appears.

In the box that opens, put the check mark next to the item I want to remove this tag and click on the button Keep it going, then select the option Remove the tag created by [nome] and click on Keep it going And OK to complete the operation.

Now the tag is removed, but remember: the post you were mentioned in will continue to be visible in the News section of Facebook and in the search results of the social network. If for one reason or another you want your friend to delete the message completely, put the check mark next to the item in the report Ask to [nome] to remove the post instead of next to the option to remove the tag.

Do you want to stand out from a photo? No problem, the steps to follow are pretty much identical to the one we’ve just seen together for detach from a post of Facebook. All you have to do is open the image you are mentioned in, click on the button Options located at the bottom left and select the item Report / remove tags from the menu that appears. The rest of the process can be found detailed in my guide on how to stand out from a Facebook photo.

Now let’s see how to prevent the posts in which we are tagged from being automatically published in our diary. If you want the ability to filter the messages and photos in which you are mentioned before these contents end up on your personal page, go to the profile settings and select the item Journal and tagging from the left sidebar.

On the page that opens, click on the link Edit placed next to the item Want to check the tags people add to your posts before they are visible on Facebook?, set the item Yup from the menu that appears and click on Close to save the changes. By doing so, every time someone tags you in a post or photo you will receive a notification and you can decide whether to show the content in your diary. Convenient, right?
