Facebook AI recognises face, can alert you on misuse

Facebook also says the optional service being introduced in many countries will help stop "catfishing" - where people pretend to be someone else online - identity theft and fraud.

First of all, you need to change the "Tag suggestions" which is by default to no one.

The company plans to add an "on/off" switch to allow users to control all Facebook features related to facial recognition, Sherman said. You're in control of your image on Facebook and can make choices such as whether to tag yourself, leave yourself untagged, or reach out to the person who posted the photo if you have concerns about it. And just in time for alcohol-laden holiday parties, you can also be notified if someone in your friend network has posted a compromising picture of you without explicitly tagging you.

Facebook will notify users when they appear in someone's photo, even if they're not tagged, as long as they are part of the selected audience for that post or if the post in question is set to public. We're doing this to prevent people from impersonating others on Facebook, ' said the company.

Facebook is about to literally live up to its name as a new series of facial recognition algorithms can now track a person's face across the platform even if that face was not tagged at least once. Our technology analyzes the pixels in photos you're already tagged in and generates a string of numbers we call a template.

This new feature relies on facial recognition, and it's created to give users some peace of mind that photos of them are not circulating on the social network without them knowing about it.

With regards to helping the visually impaired, two years ago, Facebook launched an automatic alt-text tool that describes photos to people with vision loss. It then compares newly uploaded images to the template. Also, being told when people are using your photos as their own profile pictures is a win.

Users will be able to keep track of all of their recognized photos on Facebook, even those they're not tagged in, from the new Photo Review section of one's profile.
