  9. 9
    Tap on the switch to the right of "Timeline Review", labeled "OFF", to turn it on.
    This page says, "Review posts friends tag you in before they appear on your timeline? Note: This only controls what's allowed on your timeline. Posts you are tagged in still appear in search, news feed and other places on Facebook." What this does, is it allows us to have some control over what's on our timeline. If someone tags us in a photo or post, we will get to review that post or photo, look at it first, then choose if we want it to appear on our timeline. We can not control where or if they appear in our news feed or other places in Facebook.
