Edited by Thor, Rushell, Jen M
Hello and welcome to VisiHow. In this video, we are going to show you how to turn on and off the option to review tags people add to your posts before they appear on Facebook on an HTC One M8.
To begin turn the phone on by pressing the Power button located on the top of the phone.
Once the phone has been activated, we will see the lock screen.
To unlock the phone, swipe the screen upwards.
Once the phone has been unlocked, we will see the home screen, and at the bottom we will see several icons.
It is one of these icons that we now need to access, as we need to open the Applications folder.
To do that, we can use the icon locate at the bottom of the home screen and in the middle.
It is a grid made up of white dots.
Press down on that icon, and it will open the "Apps" folder.
In this folder, we now need to find the "Facebook" application.
It has the "Facebook" icon, which is a blue tile with a white "f" on top. Underneath, it says the word "Facebook".
Press down on the "Facebook" icon, and it will open up the application.
We need to find the Account Settings menu, and to do that we need the icon on the far right-hand side of the screen and in the white bar at the top.
There are three gray horizontal lines.
Press down on that icon to open a menu.
On that menu, we want the fourth option under "Settings".
It says "Account Settings". Next to those words is a gray circle with a white outline of a head and shoulders and a white cog inside of it. It might be necessary to scroll up or down in order to find the "Account Settings" option.
When found, press down on "Account Settings" to open that menu.
Now, we want the option that says "Timeline and Tagging", so press down on that section.
On the next screen scroll down to the third section, and we want the option that says, "Review tags people add to your own posts before the tags appear on Facebook?" Underneath, it says the word "Off", indicating that this option is not activated.
What this means is that if we post something on Facebook, and someone tags another person in it, then that tag will appear immediately. It will not ask for our permission. However, this can be changed.
Press down on that section, and it will open the "Tag Review" screen.
The information says, "Review tags people add to your own posts before the tags appear Facebook? Turn on Tag Review to review tags friends add to your content before they appear on Facebook. When someone who you're not friends with adds a tag to one of your posts you'll always be asked to review it. Remember When you approve a tag, the person tagged and their friends may be able to see your post." We need to understand all this information. This option gives us the power to give permission and decide who can add a tag to our posts. If we post something, and someone tags someone in that post, we will have to give permission for that tag to appear on Facebook. As it said, if we give permission and the tag does appear, then other people's friends may be able to see our post as well.
Currently the option is "OFF", as it says at the top right corner of the screen.
Press down on that box to turn the option "ON".
Then it should take us back to the previous menu.
Now, if we scroll down again to the "Review tags people add..." option, underneath it says the word "On".
Therefore, the option is now turned "On". Now, for any tags that appear or that people add to our posts, we will have to give our permission for them to appear on Facebook.
Press down on the option again.
If it does not respond, it may have a glitch, which can be common with Facebook or the menus.
The option turns blue when we press on it, but nothing happens.
In that case, we need to press on the white curved arrow at the bottom left to go back.
It appears to go to the previous screen, but actually has stayed in the same menu.
Now, we can press down on the option, "Review tags people add to your own posts before the tags appear on Facebook?"
Then it will open the "Tag Review" option screen, and we can turn the option Off or On as needed.
This concludes our tutorial on how to turn on and off the option to review tags people add to your posts before they appear on Facebook on an HTC One M8.
