so do you have 2 facebook accounts?

You can register a maiden name alongside your married name.

Tagging only works with friends, so if someone has added you by your maiden name, it is your married name profile they see.

If your account is registered in your married name, update the account to include a "former" name.

What I mean to say, is that when someone searches for you by your maiden name, it's your married profile that shows up. If they add you as a friend, you are forever known to them by your married name.

Thank you - have now updated my former name...

So, if i am tagged in someone's photos in my married name it will show up in MY photo page right?

Friends have tagged me with maiden name in their photos, and i want those pictures to appear on my photo page too...

If you have been tagged, they will show in your 'my photos', for all your other friends to see.
