Facebook Drops Default Facial Recognition Tag Suggestions

Perhaps FB is beginning to understand the public’s suspicion of facial recognition?…

[…] Facebook is giving users more control over a facial recognition feature used by the company to help identify, or Tag, people on its platform. Starting Tuesday, the company said it would allow its users to opt-out of the Tag Suggestions feature, while at the same time the company is attempting to help users better understand what the feature does.

Facebook said it will replace the default Tag Suggestions setting on its platform – which automatically offered suggestions for users to be tagged in friends’ photos – with a new privacy button, called Face Recognition, which users can manually turn off if they don’t want their biometrics to be leveraged in suggested photo tags.
