    So, those of you who have Facebook know that you can tag people in photos, including yoruself. To be honest, I've tagged myself in a few photos, but I'm starting to wonder if it's a bit silly, really, since the photos are on your site anyway and people can view the album on your page.

    Discuss whether you tag yourself and whether you think tagging yourself in your own photos is normal/desperate/shallow/pointless or just down right retarded.

    No, definitely not. It screams "LOOK AT ME!" Actually, I think they've stopped displaying who tagged you in photos now, anyway, so you'd probably be able to get away with it.

    I do, it shows up in the 'Pictures of You' part and makes it easier for profile pictures etc. Personally I look through the pictures of someone rather than all of their albums at first as it gives a more immediate idea of them.

    I do. I just thought that if I'm tagging other people in a picture, I may as well tag myself.

    I've always thought it was kind of pointless, really.

    Erm occassionally, usually if there is a photo I like of me that someone hasn't tagged, usually albums when out when some mug takes about 350 photos.
    If it was my album, then defo no, hate people who just upload their own album then proceed to tag themselves in every photo they are in.

    ^Exactly this. I just tag everyone in my photos as standard. It's a great perk of Facebook photo albums to quickly sort photos by who is in them. I like looking through my boyfriend's photos of himself, for example :p:. I can't imagine why you would tag other people but not yourself... it just seems like a desperate and OTT attempt to not appear a certain way.

    Now what is silly is when people trawl through other people's photos to untag themselves.

    ...Oh and the 'photos of you and ...' is also a nice feature .

    pretty standard, I don't see the point of people on the internet being able to view hundreds of photos of yourself in your life, seems a bit intrusive. Saying that I have loads of photos tagged, very few tagged by me, but I don't see anything wrong with it.

    Personally, I think it's nice to have the tag as long as the pics aren't too bad. For example you could be looking for someone on facebook and you can find them directly from the tag.

    Another thing is seeing photos from other peoples albums that they have uploaded of you. It's an easy way to establish pictures of you. Especially when your in need of a new profile pic! lol!

    I think I have tagging OCD though, I like to have everyone tagged

    Yeah, I tag myself. When I go on other peoples profile pages I don't search through their albums to find photos of them, I just click on "Photos of Blabla (162)" or something.

    No I don't, and it really bugs me when my friends go tagging my albums thinking they're being helpful and tagging me as well :\ I only want them ONCE on my profile, so that's either in one of my albums OR in the tagged photos album. No need for both really.

    If I'm tagging an album I've uploaded I won't tag everyone else and then miss myself out; but at the same time I don't root through albums tagging myself.

    Yes I do. If I'm tagging others in an album, why not tag myself too? I don't see how it's in any way desperate or attention seeking..

    If the picture's something I uploaded that's sufficiently good, then probably.
