Few of Ireland's two million regular Facebook users have been spared the embarrassment, upset or offence of something they've seen on the social network.

But what happens when an objectionable photo or comment relates to you personally? Here's a quick synopsis of what you can do.

1. You're 'tagged' in an inappropriate photo

This could be anything from a rude picture to something more serious. The problem with tags is your friends become alerted. You have full control here. You can remove the tag yourself on the photo. If the person persists, you can block them and they can't ever tag you again.
