Social Media Tagging Etiquette: Clinton Kelly Weighs In On What's Right & Wrong

"These days, any picture that is taken of you, you can pretty much assume it's going to end up in the public somewhere," Clinton says. "I think that when it comes to your very best friends and your closest family, you should assume that they have the right to post a picture of you online without your permission." 

"However," he goes on, "if they say to you, 'You know what, I really don't like that picture. Can you please either untag me or take it down?' You should honor that request as a good friend or a family member."

Now, if you want to be ultra-conservative, you may just want to get their permission first. On the other hand.

Be sensitive to reasons why someone might not want a photo posted beyond just how they look.
