And finally Facebook is rolling out a new feature. No need anymore to manually tag your friends when you upload your photos to the site. Facebook will offer a tag suggestion feature that uses facial recognition software to figure out which of your friends are your pictures.

If you want to opt out you can always just wear your Richard Nixon mask everywhere you go.

Marketplace is on a mission.

We believe Main Street matters as much as Wall Street, economic news is made relevant and real through human stories, and a touch of humor helps enliven topics you might typically find…well, dull.

Through the signature style that only Marketplace can deliver, we’re on a mission to raise the economic intelligence of the country—but we don’t do it alone. We count on listeners and readers like you to keep this public service free and accessible to all. Will you become a partner in our mission today?
