The new face recognition tool would help people in better managing their identity on Facebook. This new tool will help people in finding photos that they’re not tagged in and would help in identifying if anyone else attempts to use their image as the profile picture.
Joaquin Quinonero Candela, Director, Applied Machine Learning in his blog clarified that this new feature will make people more confident while posting their own pictures to Facebook. Because the technology would let them know if anybody is uploading their photos as his profile picture.
Candela also stated that they are bringing a new method where visually impaired people can understand more about the photos they are encountering on Facebook. Very shortly, you will find a simple on and off switch instead of settings for individual features that use face recognition technology.
