Face.com's Facebook App Uses Facial Recognition to Identify Untagged Friends

Untagged Photos of You on Facebook? Face.com Will Find You

Remember that time I reminded you to tag yourself on Facebook and many of you said that you often deliberately did not tag yourself, or sometimes even untagged yourself?

Well, a new Facebook app by Face.com uses face-recognition technology to identify photos of your contacts on Facebook.

It searches tagged and untagged photos, which is cool if you're the one looking, but if you've ever untagged an embarrassing photo of yourself that one of your friends has posted, your contacts will be able to find it and see it using this app.

Hopefully there aren't too many blackmail-worthy photos of you online!

if you untag yourself in a picture it won't let anyone else "re-tag" you...they'll get a message saying that the person has untagged themselves and only that person can re-tag themselves...

that sucks. why did they feel the need to create this app? does it allow us to block the app like the rest of those annoying apps? i purposefully untag my photos because people don't have sense and put up pictures without my permission or that i don't want people to see.

I'm a little freaked out about this. It's not like I have humiliating pictures on facebook of me, but this doesn't sit well. Another thing I don't have control of. What am I suppose to do? Message every friend that might have a picture of me and tell them to take it down?

What about those of us who love to untag unflattering photos?! Yikes.

Greaaaaaaaaat. So my 2 hours of untagging a few weekends ago to reduce my "online presence" meant nothing.
