How to undo tags on Facebook

Facebook tags are an easy way to alert your friends when you talk about them in a post or upload an image of them. If a friend posts a picture of you that you are not crazy about, it is easy to remove the tag so that the photo no longer appears on your profile. Likewise, if a friend checks you in to a local bar or restaurant and you'd prefer more privacy, the tag is removed with just the click of a mouse. In addition to removing all tags of your own name, you may undo tags of other people on your own images and posts.
