Facebook has just announced that they will be upgrading their Photos section with facial recognition and that the new feature will be called Tag Suggestions. This new feature will automatically suggest users as to who they should tag in their photos. While this may be a cause for concern amongst many people, I’m sure that an equal number of Facebook users will be just as happy.
The mechanics of Tag Suggestions is actually quite simple. The software simply matches new photos with old ones that have already been tagged. It will then give you suggestions, and all you have to do is accept and save the tags.
The facial recognition software utilizes technology that was built in-house, as well as some technology that came from Facebook’s numerous partners.
