Facebook can recognise your face in photos
I first spotted the feature on my own account yesterday when I uploaded a few photos from a day out at the weekend. Facebook’s photo app suggested a I tag a few of my friends and the suggestions were right too.
It’s a potentially useful application of the technology but as always with Facebook there are privacy issues here too. It should be opt in and not opt out as it’s set up at the moment. If you want to opt out go to the top right menu, account >> privacy settings and click on “Customise settings”. Then click on “Edit Settings” next to “Suggest photos of me to friends”. Here you can choose to enable or disable the feature.
Here’s Facebook’s own blog post on the subject – https://blog.facebook.com/blog.php?post=467145887130
