I had gone out with a few friends and one took some pictures of us. I know he took several, but for some reason he put a really bad one of me with 2 other friends on Facebook. (bad in the sense I wasn't looking at the camera and unintentionally making a stupid face). The picture has already received several likes. My name isn't tagged in it, but we have a lot of mutual friends and I just don't want everyone seeing it.
How can I politely ask him to take it down? I'm relatively recent friends with him and being from Japan I get the sense he may be very sensitive to negative feed back.
Does something like the following work?
You took so many good photos and I'm making a ridiculous face in this one, would you be able to switch it with another photo?
My goal is to have him take the photo down and not offend or put strain on our relationship.
