How To / Why Leave Facebook

untagging from all photos

UPDATE!!! this code has been updated >> see the new code && video in the unfriending tutorial

while facebook gives u the option to individually untag urself from photos ( 1 by 1 ), there's no way to automatically untag from all photos. below r steps && code for quickly untagging urself from all photos

first ( in google chrome ) open ur javascript console ( View > Developer > Javascript Console ) or ( command + option + j ) && copy+paste the entire jquery library into ur console and+ press 'enter'.

scroll down once or twice to load up a few dozen images ( not too many, if u load hundreds of images ur browser could crash trying to untag them all... remember this is a 'hack', find a sweet spot )

after u've loaded up a few images, copy+paste the code below into ur console ( && press enter )

this will automatically click the "edit" button on each image for u which opens up the submenu. u won't see the submenus ( cause they're hidden ), but when the console says "undefined" then u'll know they're there.

after that, copy+paste the code below ( then click enter ), this will open up all the "Report/Remove" boxes ( they'll be one ontop of the other, so it may look like only one is open )

when the "Report/Remove" boxes have finished loading copy+paste the code below ( && hit enter ) to automatically click all the "untag" check boxes

u may also notice that the dialogue boxes ( && the background ) become hard to see b/c of the layers of semi-transparent black stacking on each other, to remove these ( which helps to be able to tell when the dialoge boxes have finished loading ) use the code below

once they're checked, copy+paste ( && hit enter ) the code below to automatically remove all the tags

there may be a second set of dialogue boxes so u may have to do this last step twice. then refresh ur page && repeat with the next batch of posts
