What do you do about requests to tag your photos with people who aren’t actually in the photos and whom you aren’t FB friends with (assuming it’s not obvious spam)?
I’m curious about generality, but my situation:
I posted a bunch of photos from a local club event, added captions with names, but only tagged people whom I know want to be tagged and whom I’m FB friends with (thus able to tag), and encouraged people to tag their friends, since I’m not FB friends with a lot of the group, but most of my friends are. Note that I do know everyone IRL, so I can tell if the tag requests are really for the right people. The album, unlike most of my locked-down profile, is set as "Friends of Friends (and Friends of Tagged)", so I am positive that everyone in the album can be tagged by someone I’m friends with, or whom my friends are friends with (and, I’m 95% sure that everyone in the album w/ a FB account can access it, even if not tagged). (all that make sense?)
One person (Alex) requested a tag—right on the subject’s face—for the person pictured’s partner (let’s call the photographed person Lesley, the requested tag/partner Shannon).
I’m not friends with Shannon or Lesley—I’m not even sure Lesley (in the photo) has a FB account. Shannon’s account is public enough that I can see a lot of their photos, and none of them seem to be ones where Shannon is tagged, but it’s really Lesley—so I don’t think this is standard procedure for the couple. But, there could be a ton I don’t have permission to see, of course.
Is this just another awkward way of alerting Shannon that Lesley’s photo’s up there?
Would you allow the tag and leave it up to Shannon to accept/delete? Would you just ignore? Would you ask the tagger (Alex) why they tagged Shannon on Lesley’s photo?
