My friend was tagged in a photo on someone's profile that he's concerned about. He doesn't have a Facebook himself, but it was a picture of him, and the poster tagged him under a name that was meant as a joke among us (it wasn't vulgar or demeaning, but it was still a bit suggestive. I don't think his name was anywhere on it). About half a day later the entire photo was been deleted by the poster immediately upon request. We've apologized to our friend for our actions and intended not to do it again, but he is very upset over this and is concerned that he won't be able to get into college over it. He's an overall good student. My other friend, who was the poster, feels really guilty about it and I'm just stuck in the middle and wanting to make things better :(
Also, the profile is set to only friends can view it and search for it. But are colleges able to see private profiles too?
