All social networks such as Facebook, Instagram and Twitter believe in developing user-oriented features because they all care how someone feels secured on their network. Likewise, new features always emerge on the demands and one of many to make mention here is the “untagging” option.
The feature works great for those people who have thousands of friends on networks but they wish to untag themselves from the posts for some reasons.
Facebook and Instagram have almost the same features, one is called tagging that allows you to tag your friends in your posts. Likewise, it allows your friends to tag you in their Instagram stories, feeds and posts. You may have tons of friends on Instagram that love to share photos and videos with you on a daily basis. It’s not unusual for your username to get tagged on photos, videos and media content of other people.
It’s just that they want to make you a part of it so you can find the post easily, like it and post your opinion.
Most often you just feel like your username is being tagged on certain posts that are aligned with the ethical codes or have content so inappropriate that you decide not to do anything with it. For instance, if your friend is writing extensively against any cause that is stirring up quite a lot of heat and aggravating people, you may not wish to be a part of the content. You don’t support your friend for this idea of posting the content that is hurting the feelings of any community or group.
You don’t have to unfriend the person who’s doing it. Doing so is not necessary if you wish to have a connection with them on good terms but you cannot support their activities online for your own personal reasons.
If so, you can always untag yourself from their photos, videos and posts in general.
