Some times you might get some notification from one of your Facebook friend who has tagged you on Facebook in some useless photo in which so many people will keep replying and you will get a flood with a large number of notifications on your Facebook profile.

facebook allows larger pictures

In such a case the simplest way to get rid of these notifications is to remove your self from being tagged in that photo, by visiting that photo once. However Facebook does not have any settings which could prevent some one from tagging you in photo, still you can customize the privacy settings to control over who can see the photos you are tagged in.

Follow the procedure below to control the Facebook privacy settings

1. Login to Facebook with your username and password

2. Now navigate to Facebook account privacy settings
