Geek Tip: Don't Forget to Tag Yourself in Facebook

Geek Tip: Don't Forget to Tag Yourself in Facebook

Today's geek tip is really more of a reminder. I'm sure you're an expert at tagging your photos in Facebook and beyond, but I keep seeing a common, easy mistake: Forgetting to tag yourself in pictures on Facebook.

I'll click into a newly uploaded album, and mouse around the picture to see who's in it, and often, the uploader tags everyone but themselves. My theory is that you think that because you're uploading the photo, Facebook will track that it was you, and keep it on your profile as a picture of yours.

But a picture of yours is not the same as a picture with you in it, so when you're tagging photos, don't forget to click on your own face and add your name.
