Social Networking Sites May Be Monitored By Security Services

If you're one of those poor saps who often gets told you look like someone else, get ready for a barrage of notifications from Facebook saying someone uploaded a photo of you.

Facebook announced that it will start using its facial recognition technology to find photos of you across its site, even if you aren't tagged in those photos.

The features demonstrate how Facebook is using a trove of facial recognition data, a type of data that has become a key focus for tech titans.

The feature builds on technology Facebook already uses to suggest tags or labels for people in photos users post, Rob Sherman, the company's deputy chief privacy officer, said in an interview. You're in control of your image on Facebook and can make choices such as whether to tag yourself, leave yourself untagged, or reach out to the person who posted the photo if you have concerns about it. The objective of the scanning, according to Facebook, is to alert you if someone has publicly uploaded a photo of you that you don't know about, especially if they are trying to impersonate you. When enabled, notifications appear in your account when Facebook thinks it spotted you in a photo.

This new setting will be able to be turned off with a simple on/off control.

Conor McGregor Says MMA Fight is Next & "F*ck WWE"
Last week, Pacquiao admitted he'd opened talks with McGregor over a big-money fight in April next year. Then, while fielding other questions about his next move, McGregor said "MMA next".

Facebook Inc. announced today that it will begin using its facial recognition technology to recognize users in any picture, whether they are tagged in it or not. We're doing this to prevent people from impersonating others on Facebook.

Facebook is also using facial recognition to create new tools for those with visual impairments. The post is titled: " Hard Questions: Should I Be Afraid of Face Recognition Technology? .

"When it comes to face recognition, control matters".

Naturally there are fun reasons for a feature like this, such as when someone posts of a photo from a family outing you may have attended, allowing you to keep a photo you may not have seen otherwise. Apple replaced its fingerprint reader with a facial recognition camera to unlock its latest iPhone, and also uses facial recognition to sort photos.

Facebook will also allow users to ignore a conversation in Messenger and move it out of your inbox without having to block the sender.
