How to untag someone in a post by your Page?

Discussion in 'Facebook' started by James WP, Nov 9, 2019.

  1. #1
    I've made a post on my Facebook Page containing photos in which a friend has been mistakenly auto-tagged by the site's facial recognition algorithms.

    This has happened before and I usually notice before submitting the post, so I can just click the 'X' that appears by his name on the tagged photo. This time I didn't spot it though, so the post says "[Page Name] with [Friend's Name]" at the top.

    I've been able to go in and untag him from the individual photos, but it still says this at the top of the post itself. I can't find an option to remove his name.

    Remove Photo Tags
    1. Locate the photo with the tagged person you want to remove and click on the photo.
    2. Click the "Tag Photo" button at the bottom of the photo. Hover over the person's name you want to remove from the photo and select "Remove Tag." Click "Done Tagging."
    as long as the photo is yours

    Thanks for the reply Ziga.

    That's the thing, though. He's not actually tagged on any of the photos anymore - I took care of that - yet he's still tagged on the post itself. :(

    I see ...My solution would be to delete the post entirely and post again, this time be sure to untag before :)

    Luckily I've been able to get the friend to untag himself. It's crazy though that I couldn't do it myself. Thanks anyway Ziga.
