If you have not heard or read about the new facebook Facial Recognition feature then this article is for you. Facebook in a recent blog post said that "now, if you're in a photo and are part of the audience for that post, we'll notify you, even if you haven't been tagged."

To further explain how this feature performs its duty, you will be automatically notified by this powerful facial recognition technology when it identify a photo of you somewhere in someones wall, profile picture or even in a group picture without you being tagged (depending on the uploader's photo settings).

This new feature will send you a notification that there is a new photo that "might include you". Then it will be left for you to choose whether to tag yourself, or ignore the photo.

This new facebook facial recognition system is already up and running in some countries but not in Canada or European Union maybe because of the privacy regulations.

The new technology is also aimed at fighting too many fake accounts on facebook by letting the real owner of such photo, whether a celebrity to be aware of who is using his/her image on the largest social network (facebook).

Since the announcement of this facial recognition technology, it has been greeted by a lot of reactions both good and bad whether it will function well in this era where we have a lot of good photo editing software that can easily confuse the technology.

Some people even said that this same technology could also theoretically be used by bullies who post embarrassing photos of people knowing that they will almost instantly be shown a notification about it.

Because of the reasons above, and if you share in their own idea or better still have a personal reason and wish to disable the Facebook Facial Recognition from Auto Tagging You in Photos which is automatically On by default, you can do it by opening your Facebook, go to settings>>Timeline and tagging. In the Tagging section, you will see an option titled, Who sees tag suggestions when photos that look like you are uploaded?
