“Most definitely, sometimes it’s just a really bad picture that you just don’t want to be associated with.”

“Yeah, I have, I didn’t want what was on the picture to be displayed.”

“Yes because it was really bad, and I didn’t want the world to see it. ”

I've never asked, but I've been asked. A friend's boyfriend wasn't happy with one of her that I posted. I thought it was a funny shot, but he's always been a little insecure.

Nope, but I knew this girl that asked the police to re-take her mugshot as she didn't look "quite right" ...... true story

why bother getting a photo untagged when you're just going to tell the first person that asks, "oh yeah, you wouldn't BELIEVE all the scandalous pictures I've been in"

My understanding is that if you are tagged in a photo, then you have the ability to restrict who can view that photo. However, if you untag yourself, then anyone can see it. So wouldn't it be better to leave yourself "tagged" and maintain viewing restrictions on unsavory photos?

The_Original_Bob is correct. You can untag yourself. I've done it.

I have no idea what this means, so no... I have never asked to be untagged (or tagged).

I just wish you could delete pictures that people put on their page of you that you don't like. Sometimes I think certain people prefer to post horrible pictures of me on their page. I mean I know it's hard to believe that I take a bad picture, but it happens.... often.
