FACEBOOK WILL SOON TAG YOU IN PHOTOS AUTOMATICALLY

February 10, 2015

If you love uploading photos to Facebook but hate taking the time to tag them all, listen up. Facebook recently created a technology called DeepFace that identifies faces and offers tag suggestions which the user can accept or reject.

Now, the social network has started rolling out the automatic tagging tool to select users. Creators of DeepFace say it can pick a face out of a crowd with 97.25 percent accuracy.

Going forward, Facebook will email you if a photo of your face makes it onto the social network, giving you the option to blur your face out and retain your privacy.

People who have the feature and want to disable also have the option to do so.
