Did you know Facebook has a feature which will analyze photos uploaded by your friends and if it recognizes you in the photo (using its facial recognition technology), Facebook will suggest your name so your friend can more easily tag the photo?
Now don’t get me wrong, I think this is a great tool however, like any powerful tool – if your not educated on its use, it can go from being a useful tool to a dangerous one. I’ve talked about this in the past and yes, facial tagging is a bit of a sore subject with me due to the wide-open terms of service agreements being used by Facebook, Google and a few others published by the largest social media sites out there.
So, with that in mind, today I’ll be following up a previous groovyPost where I talked about how-to blog people from tagging you in facebook photos. I guess you could consider this one Part 2!
