Facebook Face Recognition: A Major Concern?

Apparent it is an issue to a certain group of people that Facebook has enabled face detecting for easier tagging when photos are uploaded.

'Yet again, it feels like Facebook is eroding the online privacy of its users by stealth” - Graham Cluley, a senior technology consultant at Sophos

To me, it’s no big deal. If you are the one who wants privacy, why are you connected to the social media in the first place?? Lock yourself in a room with no internet connection at all. Now THAT’S privacy.

Anyways, the face detector is somewhat of a fail because when I uploaded photos from my Bali trip quite some time ago, it didn’t serve well.

My face was recommended to tag as my sis. It was understandable since we are sisters, naturally, there are bound to be some similar features on our face.

As for the dancer during the morning performance, Wati my old close friend was tagged. I really don’t know if that is a good or bad thing because that particular dance was somewhat pretty but scary.

Most of the faces where not detected at all so why be a worry wart? unless you DO have something to hide….. haaaa..


  1. yala.. thats true.. if one wants to his the privacy.. dont get caught on camera, and maybe dont do it in the first place! :)
