removing your facebook photo tags automagically

Este post también está escrito en español aquí.

Privacy at Facebook is heavy-duty. As a big fan of the Worlds Collide Theory I hate be tagged compulsively. I would like to select in which photos appear in my profile and feed. Since I couldn't find that option in the setting menu, I looked for the answer in my favorite scripting language: Python.

This 60-lines-long script removes your tag from the latests photos where you has been labelled. You can download it from here. You may run it hourly (or every 15 minutes, or every 5 minutes, depends how paranoid you are) via cron or whatever.

Any improvement is welcome. It probably runs on Windows too. If you managed to do it, leave a comment for the others.

NEW VERSION! (available here).
