Facebook announced that it will be launching a new face recognition feature for photos, which hopes to make the task of tagging easier for its users. The technology, much like Faces in Apple's iPhoto program, will be able to detect who's who whenever you upload new pics of previously identified friends.
According to Switched, whenever you upload a pic and want to tag people in it, Facebook's face recognition software will go into effect and give you a list of suggested names based on other photos. Once you've tagged a person, the site will automatically tag that person in any new photos, saving you time.
It's quite possible that the facial recognition technology could be inaccurate, but Facebook Vice President of Product Chris Cox says the site will only make hlghly confident suggestions. Let's hope so!
