Facebook Face Recognition? What’ll they think of next? Yep…It’s coming!

So you may have noticed in your privacy setting a little section that is blurred out and says, “Suggest photo’s of me to friends,” and then it either has edit rights or it says “This is not yet available to you,” like mine does. Well, no worries, it’s rolling out to all Facebook users over the next few weeks. But your probably wondering “WHAT THE HECK DOES THAT MEAN FOR ME???”

I’ll tell ya!

Facebook has installed face recognition software into its system so that when you upload photo’s of you, your friends, and family, they can now suggest “tags” so that you don’t have to go through the process of tagging people. I suppose for some this can be very handy, I know with a lot of “promotors,” when they have to TAG a photo of an event, this would be nice because now Facebook will remember (in theory) the last event photo and all who were TAGGED would be automatically suggested for the next event.  Or if you have an upload of a large party and you have several friends who you have tagged previously, Facebook will suggest their names.

However, if you have a very “PRIVATE” page similar to mine, you may want to disable this function. You already know Facebook thought this through and has put in the ability to “LOCK OUT” the face recognizer from your Facebook buddies. Because really….some of us don’t want our pals randomly tagging us in their photo’s.  I know I get tired of going through and “Untagging.” hahaha! Just kidding! Stay tuned for more updates on this feature!
