Web Desk: Facebook Introduced a new facial recognition feature known as Photo Review that will notify you when your face show up in newly posted photos so you can tag yourself or leave it be or ask the uploader to take it down or report it to Facebook.
Photo Review will keep track of all your untagged but recognized photos. Facebook also says it has no plans to use facial recognition to enhance ad targeting or content relevancy sorting.
If someone uploads your photo which is always public, you will always be notified. This feature is designed to give people more control and make them feel safe.
“Over time our goal is to make these features available everywhere . . . but right now we’re focusing on markets where tag suggestions are available” says Facebook’s Deputy Chief Privacy Officer Rob Sherman.
