With Facebook, you can find all the photos in which you or your friends are tagged. Photos you are tagged in are displayed in the Photos section of your Facebook profile or in the Activity Log. To find photos in which your friends are tagged, use the search box. You can search for specific friends or view photos of all your friends. You can remove your tag from any photo, but you can't delete photos posted by other people on their profiles.
