    Fan check is based on your activity on people's profiles, so commenting on their statuses, wall posts etc. It doesn't have any way of telling how much time you spend looking at a person's profile, how often you talk to them using facebook chat or send them messages.

    You can't stop it, the app takes data from the user's profile and then orders in terms of number of comments/ posts on their profile other users.
    I'd suggest asking friends to take the pictures down or just to cut you out of the picture, if they won't it's still not an issue.
