Facebook Launches Facial Recognition of automatic Tagging of Photos

 Now Facebook has launched a Facial Recognition technique to automatically Tag photos in your friends album. And as Facebook does it, this has been enabled by default raising privacy issues. Now when you upload a photo of a group, Facebook recognizes the Faces and gives you suggestions to tag automatically. This is how Facebook reveals the use of such a tool
 While tags are an essential tool for sharing important moments, many of you have said tagging photos can be a chore. (Like that time you had to tag your cousin and her fiancĂ© over and over and over again in 64 different pictures of their engagement party, and then go back and tag the guests.)

Facebook has also mentioned on how to disable this feature, follow these steps if you don't want to get tagged on your Friends Album
  • Go to your privacy settings.
  • Click “Customize settings.”
  • Scroll down to “Things others share.”
  • Find “Suggest photos of me to friends.”
  • Edit accordingly.
