Every day, people add more than 100 million tags to photos on Facebook.
Facebook are finally rolling out Face Recognition which has been in beta since the end of last year. This is all a part of their continuous updating of photo tagging. Love it or hate it they will continue to push through these updates to “make your life easy to tag photos”.
Because photos are such an important part of Facebook, we want to be sure you know exactly how tag suggestions work: When you or a friend upload new photo, Facebook uses face recognition software—similar to that found in many photo editing tools—to match your new photos to other photos you’re tagged in. Facebook group similar photos together and, whenever possible, suggest the name of the friend in the photos.
Here are the full details from the Facebook Blog
If you want to adjust your Facebook settings to make sure that automatic face recognition is disabled then it is really simple.

We would love to know what you think about this feature?
