Facebook lets users know when their pictures pop up

GETTY VISION Facebook believes people will want to be told about

Facebook users will be able to tag themselves in images posted elsewhere in the social network, or express concerns about pictures to people who post them, according to Mr. Candela. We're also introducing a way for people who are visually impaired to know more about who is in the photos they encounter on Facebook.

Facebook will use facial recognition software to alert users when they appear in other people's photos, even when they are not tagged.

The new Facebook facial recognition feature is created to detect when users appear in other people's photos, even if they're not tagged, and notify them so they can manage the situation.

Facebook will notify users when they appear in someone's photo, even if they're not tagged, as long as they are part of the selected audience for that post or if the post in question is set to public. Facebook wants to prevent people from impersonating others on the platform.

We're always working to make it easier for all people, regardless of ability, to access Facebook, make connections and have more opportunities.


We are introducing these new features in most places, except in Canada and the European Union where we don't now offer face recognition technology.

For those who have opted in, Facebook creates what it calls a template of a person's face by analyzing pixels from photos where the person is already tagged. Yet, privacy advocates are concerned that things could run out of control, and the tech could be used to detect Facebook users as they shop in brick-and-mortar stores.

With regards to helping the visually impaired, two years ago, Facebook launched an automatic alt-text tool that describes photos to people with vision loss. Also, being told when people are using your photos as their own profile pictures is a win.

"You can also look at this as a creepy reminder of exactly how much Facebook knows about you".

Let's rewrite the fairy tale from the perspective of we, the huddled, relentlessly tagged masses: Since 2010, Facebook's been "helping us" by facially recognizing people in photos, suggesting their names for tagging, and not bothering to ask the people whom Facebook thought it had recognized whether or not they actually wanted to be tagged.
