BREAKING! Facebook about to start scanning all faces on all pictures on the website!
[link to www.cnn.com]

Facebook lets users opt out of facial recognition

Starting in a few weeks, the system will scan all images posted to Facebook and suggest the names of people who appear in the frame. Last year, Facebook began rolling the facial-recognition feature out to a test group.

Facebook's more than 500 million users have been automatically included in the database, but the company is allowing each person to choose whether to be identified by toggling a pane in the account's privacy settings.

The tool would still scan that person's face and figure out who it is, but it won't display that information. People can still manually tag friends.



And of course this won't totally be given/sold to the governments of the world to do lists of dissidents...

You need to go into your privacy settings, scroll down to "Things others share" and disable "suggest photos of me to friends".

The virtue of courage is a prerequisite for the practice of all other virtues, because otherwise one is virtuous only when virtue has no cost. There are times when something needs to be done, and yet we know that if we step up and do this needful thing, we will pay a heavy personal price. -C.S. Lewis

It doesn't matter, they already have the pictures on the servers. Even if they get deleted they will be bio-metrically scanned. Game set match.

Haha that's what you get for putting your whole life on Facebook. Now they'll have all your pics and your friends and family's pics in one neat little file. You make their jobs so much easier sheep

Ever been to an airport? A courthouse? A sports stadium?

Then smile, cause your face is on camera and has been downloaded into the face recognition data base.

The only way at this point to avoid the machine is to be born in a desolate pristine wilderness, then grow-up never having traveled away from your wilderness home.

If you live a day-to-day life like an average person; shopping, going to class, working, going out with friends, etc., then they already have you.

Lol @ all you people thinking just cause you don't have a FB account that you're not in 'the system'.

Pretty much, but then again you are dealing with a bunch of paranoid, delusional idiots here. If that omnipotent "they" really were going to get them, "they" would have no problem, Facebook, Myspace, internet, or otherwise.

Looks like we have a Facebooktard trying to justify having an account. Fact is you're privacy is much more compromised than mine by having a FB account.

You sound like the type who thinks every little camera has 204,800 x 186,000 resolution and they're all linked together and auto-downloads into a big database. Just like on teevee, right? CSI can zoom a $50 security camera in 1000x to get a reflection off a screw, right?

They're not set up that well - yet.

I take pictures in public all day and post them to FB with fake names.
Some days I just sit at the mall with my phone clicking picture after picture and then posting it on FB.

Ahh, I remember back in the day companies used to hire at least one asshole to go around building a BOOK on all of his or her fellow employees, just in case the company needed a reason to quickly fire someone.
Now a days fools do the job for him.
