Fortunately, there is a way to disable being tagged as everyone on Facebook. Here are the steps to follow on the desktop version of Facebook:
The steps are not that different on the Mobile versions.
To find Facebook Settings, Click your Profile picture to on the top right. Then Settings and Privacy, then Settings
Under Facebook Settings, Choose Notifications.
Under Notifications settings, scroll down to “Tags” and click to expand Tags Options.
Choose how you want to be tagged on Facebook. By default, you’re account is set to be tagged by Anyone. To change this and disable being tagged as everyone, choose the Friends of Friends option.
Once you have chosen the Friends of Friends option.
There will be a list if additional notification settings, of which one of them is the option to disable Batch @everyone mentions.
Turn Batch @everyone mentions by using the toggle button to the right or as shown.
That’s it! Now you won’t be tagged as everyone in any future Facebook posts.

How @everyone tag works:
When a group admin uses the @everyone tag, Facebook sends a notification to everyone in the group or event, letting them know that they’ve been tagged in the post.
This can be a great way to get the attention of a large group of people, but it can also be incredibly annoying for those who don’t want to be tagged.
Additional, The @everyone tag can be used by anyone in the group. Which means you may be tagged in posts that have nothing to do with yo
However, Facebook already has some rules to mitigate the abuse of this feature, here’s how it works:
- The @everyone tag can only be used once a day, in the rest of Facebook. Meaning, if you ever use @everyone in Group X, You will not be able to use it on Group Y, the same day.
- The feature can only be used by group admins, not group members. This limits how many people get to use this feature in a group.
- With this feature in place, group members do not have a visible option or button to disable being tagged over and over again. Leaving most people frustrated.
The @everyone tag may have been created with good intentions, but it can quickly become overwhelming for those who are tagged but aren’t interested in the post.
By following the steps outlined in this blog post, you can take control of your notifications and stop being tagged as everyone on Facebook.
It’s a small change, but it can make a big difference in your overall Facebook experience.
