    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.
