** WARNING: Facebook Using Facial Recognition Automatically - Instructions To Turn It Off - UPDATE: FB Have Now Apologised **
Facebook has announced they are using facial recognition to speed up the process of labeling friends and family pictures.

What they don't tell you is they have turned this on by default WITHOUT YOUR KNOWLEDGE. They are able to go through all pictures from friends and family and automatically tag you in the photos. That means that friends of friends will know who you are.

If your like me and want this feature turned off, follow these instructions:


How To Turn Off Facial Recognition


Sign into your Facebook Account

Click on Account on top right of the page and then click Privacy settings on the drop down menu.

Click Customize Settings

Scroll down to 'Suggest photos of me to friends' and click Edit.

Change setting from Enabled to Disabled and save.

It's not really bad but it could cause problems to people who don't want mugshots of themselves being tagged, especially to people you may not know. Who knows what sort of people this might attract to your profile if they know your name.

All joking aside, as a corporate business, with all the other nonsense going on in the country, it would be fairly easy for TPTB to use this software to keep tabs on people, especially after facial recognition.

Its like silently signing your freedom away. If we ever have to go through a revolutionary war, you may want to re-think using FB. FB is NOT your friend...

keep in mind that all your informations on the net is SOLD!
so why wouldn't they do the same here?
isn't the govenment already doing this face recognition thing?
maybe facebook is just helping them speed up the process...

humm.....

why do paranoid people have facebook/myspace/ect accounts? why have internet?

just toss all your electronics into the trash and seal yourself off in some unknown vault in the middle of nowhere, then pop your head out every 10 years to see if it's safe.

Anybody or any alphabet agency that has ever wanted information on you already has it by now. No need to live under illusions of privacy on the net. Sad but true.

How many times has moranbook apologised for overstepping the line? This is why we need to be ever vigilant. No-one else is going to keep the cunts in check.

And fuck anyone who uses that shit anyway.

"It was introduced in the US in December 2010 but has only now been launched globally."

Way to go Americans. You've been living with it for half a year already. "All your face are belong to us" now.
