Facebook will alert users each time their image is uploaded

He assures us that Facebook will not use the features to give strangers (other than Facebook, of course) our identities, and explains the "all or nothing" approach to the feature which will, rather than allowing you to specify how your information is used, merely decide whether to turn it on or off.

We are introducing these new features in most places, except in Canada and the European Union where we don't now offer face recognition technology.

He said the new feature give users more control by informing them when their photo has been posted.

"When you have face recognition enabled, our technology analyses the pixels in photos you're already tagged in and generates a string of numbers we call a template". You can also make choices such as whether to tag yourself, leave yourself untagged, or reach out to the person who has posted the photo or report it to Facebook. It then compares newly uploaded images to the template. Users will need to change it to "Friends", and the Photo Review will be turned on. Using facial recognition technology, Facebook can alert you to any photos in which you're visible regardless of whether or not you've been tagged.

Additionally, users can control whether Facebook can recognize them in photos and videos using facial recognition with an on/off switch. "We decided, in consultation with privacy advocates and people, that the best approach for this offering was to notify people on Facebook and provide a way to adjust it in their account settings at any time". Although this is the first official announcement that the company is moving more intensely towards facial technology - and perhaps farther away from previous forms of individual security as it skews more towards control over one's presence - facial recognition has always been a part of Facebook's platform.

"You can also look at this as a creepy reminder of exactly how much Facebook knows about you". And because of a new face recognition service the social network is rolling out Tuesday, he can now learn which friends are in photos, even those who haven't been tagged by another user.

Facebook had launched an automatic alt-text tool two years ago, which describes photos to people with vision loss.
