When I am performing edits on questions in the http://facebook.stackoverflow.com filter, I am required to include a tag that is "not related to Facebook". (If there are none present)

enter image description here

I find myself having difficulty deciding what tags to choose. Consider this (rather simple) example:
How can I access the user's mobile number from Facebook into my website?

The only (original) tag was and I added .
I understand that in most cases the tags can indeed be improved but why, when I'm viewing the Facebook filter does it require me to add a tag that is "not related to Facebook"?

I realized that the tag was really not applicable (to the above question). What I found as a "solution" was to leave the Facebook filter, returning to the "normal" SO Question link where editing the post did not require that I add a non Facebook tag and removed the tag.

Essentially a duplicate of meta.stackexchange.com/q/103807/143965 except they only addressed the error message, not the fact that it requires a non-Facebook tab. Yes I agree, this requirement is annoying when editing FB questions. – bkaid Feb 5 '12 at 20:11
