Facebook adds facial recognition functionality to photo uploads

Sat, Jul 3, 2010


With their recent acquisition of Divvyshot, Facebook is improving its photos feature by implementing facial recognition technology. Now, when a user uploads photos into an album, Facebook will be able to automatically tag individuals in the photo if their face registers with Facebook’s database.┬áThe feature is currently undergoing a limited test run, so not everyone will have access to it just yet.

Incredibly, over 100 million Facebook photos are uploaded every day.
