How to block facebook facial recognition feature
Yesterday facebook has launched it's automatic face recognition feature to all over the world which recognizes your face in photos and suggest your friends to tag you in the photo.
According to Facebook, this facial recognition feature uses a comparison of photos you're tagged in to suggest that friends tag you in new photos. The site says that this feature is intended to save you time: Instead of tagging the same friends in 25 photos you just uploaded, you can now apply one label to multiple photos in one step.
But this feature is not seems to be liked by users beause it is crossing the limit of online privacy. This feature is enable in default but you can turn it off by these steps
1: Go to Account -- > Privacy settings
2: select "Customize settings." In the second section, "Things others share," click "Edit Settings" next to "Suggest photos of me to friends."
3: change the setting from Enabled to Disabled.
note: that friends can still manually tag you in photos.
