You Can Manage Your Identity on Facebook Using Face Recognition

Facebook face recognition finds you in untagged

The new tool will notify you when you appear in media and allow you to decide if you want to tag yourself, remain untagged or even reach out to the person that posted the photo or video with any concerns you may have.

Talking to The Verge, Facebook head of privacy Rob Sherman says Photo Review nudges you about photos you might have forgotten about.

Facebook will also notify you when someone else uses a photo of you for a profile picture. However, Facebook notes that if your tag suggestions setting is now set to "none", then your default face recognition setting will be set to "off" and will remain that way until you decide to change it.

Samsung introduces the Galaxy A8/A8+ (2018) with two front cameras
RAM : While the Galaxy A8 2018 will come with 4GB RAM , the Galaxy A8+ 2018 will be available in 4GB and 6GB RAM versions. There is no information regarding the pricing and availability of the devices, Samsung will reveal more at the CES 2018.

There will also be a new on/off switch for all facial recognition features on Facebook.

You control whether Facebook can recognize you in photos and videos.

The new feature rolled out to most of Facebook's more than 2 billion global users this morning. Facebook still respects the privacy settings of people posting photos, so you won't get a notification for photos when you're not in the audience. The objective of the scanning, according to Facebook, is to alert you if someone has publicly uploaded a photo of you that you don't know about, especially if they are trying to impersonate you.

Jerry Richardson's alleged actions led to Carolina Panthers settling with accusers
Richardson fired general manager Dave Gettleman, who helped the Panthers reach Super Bowl 50, the day before training camp. In a statement Friday, team spokesman Steven Drummond acknowledged accusations had been made against Richardson, 81.

Unfortunately, the feature is not rolling out to Canada and the European Union where Facebook doesn't now offer face recognition technology. According to Sherman, this option will "completely turn off face recognition technology" for a user's account.

"When it comes to face recognition, control matters".

The same technology is also being used for a new tool that supports people with visual impairments. Facebook has a long, very unfortunate history of keeping what you delete and making getting it off Facebook as hard as humanly possible. Apple replaced its fingerprint reader with a facial recognition camera to unlock its latest iPhone, and also uses facial recognition to sort photos.

Ryan Shazier makes surprise appearance at Steelers vs. Patriots game
JuJu Smith-Schuster set the Steelers up deep in Patriots territory with a 69-yard reception from Ben Roethlisberger . Should Brown's injury be long-term, or even several weeks, the Steelers' season outlook changes dramatically.

The goal of the feature, according to Facebook, is to help users better manage their online identity. "We've also heard from groups that work with survivors of domestic violence that being able to see messages is often a valuable tool to assess if there is risk of additional abuse".
