Facebook Facial Recognition – Who is watching you?

In December 2010, Facebook announced it is taking yet another step in the ongoing process of upgrading its photo-sharing service, Facebook announced that it will soon enable facial-recognition technology–meaning that when members upload photographs and are encouraged to “tag” their friends, they will be able to choose from a list of suggestions.

Here’s how to turn it off:

1. Click on “Account” in the upper right pull-down menu.
2. Select “Privacy Settings.”
3. Select “Customize Settings” (it’s in the blue font in the middle of the page).
4. In section called “Things Others Share,” see “Suggest Photos of Me to Friends” and click “Edit.”
5. Choose “Disable.”
