Anyone seen this? The Cake Boss fan page on facebook asked for user's to post pictures of their cakes on the page and they were going to choose 3 to give their "seal of approval". I figured, what could it hurt and added a couple I was proud of and people seem to like them. Odd thing just happened tho, someone tried to tag himself in one of my cake pictures? I don't get why they'd do that unless they wanted to try and save the picture on their page or pass it off as their own cake. Facebook won't let them do it w/o my permission though, so I don't think I'm going to let them, although it's kind of strange and flattering at the same time.

I saw the cake boss thing. I keep meaning to look at dome of the cakes.
But how can someone tag themselves in a photo? I don't know enough about facebook, but I thought they had it where they recognize people in the photo. And wouldn't it look strange to their friends to tag themselves in a photo that does not look lit them? I'm missing something here.

Well, no you tag photos manually. For instance, if my wife posts pictures of our kids I always tag myself in them so they show up in my photo albums. If I allowed this guy to tag himself in the picture, it would show up in his photo albums.

Are there any rules about it having to be "real" cake or is he allowing people to post their "dummy" cakes too?

I had someone try and tag a couple of my cake photos on Facebook. I thought 'oh no you don't, you cheeky so-and-so!!' I thought that they were trying to pass the cake off as their own.

But my nephew explained it's a compliment! It means that everyone on the person's news feed will get to see it... it's a way of saying 'look at this'.

So now, when I put a cake on my group on Facebook, I tag myself and - if I'm friends with the person for whom I made the cake - I tag them, too, so that all their friends and acquaintances will see it (another way of advertising!!)

I entered a few of my cakes as well. But there is ALOT of cakes on his page......I think it said over 5,000 pics :O........so I will be super surprised if I get picked there is just way too many and I would think it will be super hard to pick the winners!!! But nothing to lose to try at least!!! Good luck to everyone that has posted their cake pics!!!

I posted a link to my cake on the wall page itself, but not sure how to get it into his photo page? Can anyone help a very computer illiterate person?

another way to alieviate someone passing off your hard work as their cake is to always put "this cake made by (your name here)" or add your website to the description under the photo. That way if someone does somehow get the photo in their album- you will always have control of the description and get credit for your work.

What exactly is the point of his 'seal of approval'? I mean, does it get you anything or are you just doing it for advertising or to say you got it? Was wondering when I read about it but didn't see anything.

You know, honestly he does do nice work but I think Chris Russom from Christopher Garren's is the best I've seen on TV. Everything they do is simply amazing in my opinion. Now, I do however think Buddy's show is much more entertaining.

I would agree with you Buddy is more entertainment than actually amazing cakes. They are fantastic and way better than anything I could pull off at this stage but I do like the cakes Chris does better.
