Etiquette Tuesday: TaG

[ 0 ] May 13, 2014 |

DSC_0008In the era of selfies, tagging Facebook pics and everyone from the age of 9 (yes, 9) having a smart phone, it is pretty hard to avoid the snapping of pictures in any given space.  This week’s Etiquette Tip speaks to the constant tagger:  To Tag or Not to Tag, that is the question?  With the new settings on Facebook, it makes it easier to weed out those tags that you do not want anyone else to see (*simply, turn your Tagged setting to “Only Me”).  The etiquette comes in where you have that one friend that insists on posting on their page and tagging you with the most unflattering photos of yourself.  What a jerk?

Tagging is your own prerogative because you are entitled to your own page, space, account, but please be mindful that not everyone is as care free in sharing as you are in the social media atmosphere.  Also, please be mindful of what you would want someone to post of you.  Would you be ok with that sleeping photo of you with drool rolling down your face making someone’s profile pic??  I think not.
