Facebook Uses Face Recognition Technology To Tag Photos


Facebook today announced tag suggestions, which will make tagging multiple photos even more convenient.

When users upload new photos, Facebook uses face recognition software?similar to that found in many photo editing tools?to match their new photos to other photos they're tagged in. Facebook also groups similar photos together and, whenever possible, suggest the name of the friend in the photos.

If a users don't like their name to be suggested, they will be able to disable suggested tags in their Privacy Settings.

"Now if you upload pictures from your cousin's wedding, we'll group together pictures of the bride and suggest her name. Instead of typing her name 64 times, all you'll need to do is click "Save" to tag all of your cousin's pictures at once. By making tagging easier than before, you're more likely to know right away when friends post photos. We notify you when you're tagged, and you can untag yourself at any time. As always, only friends can tag each other in photos," Justin Mitchell, a Facebook engineer wrote at teh company's blog.

Facebook will be debuting tag suggestions to users in the United States over the next few weeks.
