Facebook has very annoying apps which tags friends in photos and shows up on your wall. You can of course completely disable tagging in photos/videos, but there should be another easier way to get rid of these photos.

Now you can “Remove post and untag…” yourself from a photo on Facebook. When you get tagged in a photo, you can remove yourself from it without having to open the photo itself.

How to “Remove Post and Untag” on Facebook

Just go to your profile, on the wall post where it shows the post in which you’re tagged, click on the X (right corner) of a photo tag post on your wall and there you will the option to “Remove Post and Untag…”

Pretty simple, eh? I recently discovered this to quickly remove my tag from unwanted photos that friends (or applications) tag in.
