of course, you can remove your self from the tagged photograph, video or status but the presentation is always better then constant removing tags !
Removing tags from the photograph
Go to the photograph you where tagged in and then simply hover the cursor over your name and then click on remove or there should be one option like Report/Remove tag, just click on it, new window will popup and in it just click continue and you have removed the tag and you have also removed the post from your timeline. There is no way to stop any to tag you in the post but we can review the post before getting tagged in the post.
Review tags from Friends before posting
As we talked earlier that there is no way to stop any to tag you in the Facebook but you can review the post before getting tagged.
like if somebody have tagged me in the Facebook then Facebook will give a notification about it and then I can decide whether I want to be tagged in the photo or not and if I click on add to timeline then it will be added in my timeline.
To review tags from the tags go to privacy setting and go to Timeline and tagging and then simply edit Review posts friends tag you in before they appear on your timeline? and Enable it and then close it and you have done ! now when ever your friend tags you in the photo, video or status then it will notify you whether to add it in timeline or not.
