Facebook Adding Facial Recognition For Easier Tagging

Facial recognition — it's not just for desktop photo organisers anymore. Now Facebook is rolling out friend photo-tagging based on facial recognition, so you'll see suggested people tags when browsing your own photos.

Don't like the idea of your face being automatically recognised in other people's photos? You can head to your Privacy Settings, choose Custom, then change the setting for "Suggest photos of me to friends".

    My facebook account has been doing this for the past two weeks. It makes tagging my photos a lot easier. It's very similar to the desktop Picasa face recognition application.

    Facebook content is totally unsafe and Facebook has already become very insecure. I have quit facebook and am currently trying Diaspora. I will also be trying mycube when it releases as it seems much more secure
