I like to use the Faces feature of Aperture, to help me easily find photos of people. I do sometimes publish photos from Aperture to Facebook, but I don't want to tag people in Facebook. I also get a side effect of reposting albums on Facebook when I update Faces. The reposting happens without my knowledge--the only way I found out about it was people Liking and Commenting on photos that (I thought) hadn't been published for months!

    I'd suggest to disable the Facebook account in your Aperture preferences - remove Facebook from the "Web Accounts" panel in the Preperences panel.


    See this paragraphs in the Aperture User Manual:




    Then export the images your want to publish to Facebook and use Facebook's uploader. When exporting versions from Aperture, you can decide, if you want to add IPTC and Faces data.
