Facebook has discontinued the "vew as" option.  Question - when you are tagged by others.  Is it possible to show it to only the people who are tagged?  I have gone to the settings section and I pretty much can only select friends or friends of friends.

Disclaimer: I don’t use it much at all, last I checked it doesn’t matter what settings you have. If you’re tagged in something it depends on that posts privacy setting relative to the user that owns it. If a friend tags you and sets the post to friends of friends then they(friends friends) can all see that post and you tagged in it. Making it clearer, if you tag someone and set it to friends, then the person tagged AND their friends can see it.

You can also only control stuff that you post or own on your timeline, nothing you can do to control friends tags/posts.

Tldr; fb access control is a joke,

Turn on review, and limit the tagged aspect. Will still appear to a select few

I have set review on.  




I am happy for others to tag me.  If I went to someone's dinner their friends can see me fine.  I might not want all my contacts to see that.
