    Facebook added a feature where you can prevent things from being posted on your timeline until you approve them. You get one notification saying that something is awaiting approval and nothing more until you give the OK for it to be featured on your wall.

    It’s a good start to solving the problem of tagging abuse.

    You couldn’t write this out any more clearly no matter how hard you try.

    If I were you, I’d group tag your common offenders to this link on FB, and let them momentarily face your annoyance with all the notifications.

    Having a short Twitter handle that people think is a nightclub in DC has been particularly annoying. People don’t look up the correct handle and @ me on twitter and Instagram. I’ve given up on them actually learning how to use the @ and changed notifications to only – send me notices in this case:

    Mentions and replies
    -Only from people I follow

    Interactions and Mentions are a joke, these need help.

    The most annoying part about the Facebook Group Tagging is not only that someone might tag you in a post that’s not relevant to you, but that the dolt that tagged you somehow THOUGHT IT WAS. It makes you question why you’re still “friends” with them.
