Facebook Face Recognition Updates with 6 Amazing Features

Facebook Face Recognition has amazing Features that you might love to access, and just this morning, I got few updates with features that I want to share with you.

I will be leaving the messages, just as I received from Facebook, to instate the clarity of the team’s purpose.


Introducing Face Recognition for More Features


Hi Valentine, we’re always working to make Facebook better, so we’re adding more ways to use face recognition besides just suggesting tags. For example, face recognition technology can do things like:

• Find photos you’re in but haven’t been tagged
• Help protect you from strangers using your photo
• Tell people with visual impairments who’s in your photo or video

You control face recognition. This setting is on, but you can turn it off any time, which applies to features we may add later.

But here are few thing they made me know about the Facebook face recognition updates



Face Recognition Settings

To recognize whether you’re in a photo or video our system compares it with your profile picture, and photos and videos that you’re tagged in. This lets us know when you’re in other photos and videos so we can create better experiences. Learn more.
