FacialRecognitionBook

John Moe Dec 16, 2010

In a move that should frighten nobody in the world because it’s completely harmless and you should all just calm down, Facebook will start rolling out facial recognition capability in the coming weeks. Facebook will scan the photos you upload and then based on what it knows about people and how they look and who you tend to associate with, it will suggest tags of who they think is in that picture. But if that’s too spooky for you, don’t worry you big baby, you can always turn it off even though that IS NOT THE DEFAULT. Remember this day when Facebook overthrows the government.
