Facebook Gains Facial Recognition

35745 454022026728 20531316728 5831433 703650 nAs if Facebook wasn’t surrounded by enough privacy concerns already, new facial recognition technology is being added to ease the task of tagging people in images.

After its purchase of Divvyshot two months ago, Facebook is focusing more of photos and photo uploading. Apparently, more than 100 million photos are uploaded to the giant social service every day, and they see a potential to invade more people’s privacy on an even larger scale than previously.

Divvyshot was a tiny photo startup which aimed to make sharing photos easier. After only a year in business, the service was snapped up by Facebook in an effort to build the photo side of the social site.

With more changes promised to arrive shortly, it looks like Facebook wants to make genuinely worthwhile changes, and there are many improvements to be made – Facebook currently offers no control over size or resolution of images uploaded, for example.
