  • You Can Manage Your Identity on Facebook Using Face Recognition

Now, if you're in a photo and are part of the audience for that post, we'll notify you, even if you haven't been tagged. "Powered by the same technology we've used to suggest friends you may want to tag in photos or videos, these new features help you find photos that you're not tagged in and help you detect when others might be attempting to use your image as their profile picture", Joaquin QuiƱonero Candela, director of applied machine learning at Facebook, said in a blog post.

Managing your identity on Facebook will soon be a bit easier thanks to facial recognition.

Meanwhile, Facebook is also introducing a feature that will tell visually impaired users with screen readers who appear in the photos in their News Feed, even if those people aren't tagged. When photos and videos are uploaded to Facebook, they are compared to images in the template to determine if there is a match.

Facebook will also notify you when someone else uses a photo of you for a profile picture.

Introduced two years ago, the technology recognises broad object categories like "trees" or "river" and will now be able to read out the names of people in the photos too, provided they Facebook users.

The new feature rolled out to most of Facebook's more than 2 billion global users this morning.

When a photo of you has been posted, you will be alerted and given the option to tag yourself, leave yourself untagged or contact the person who posted the photo if you have concerns about it, Facebook announced in a release. "We listen carefully to feedback from people who use Facebook, as well as from experts in the field", Sherman wrote.

Naturally there are fun reasons for a feature like this, such as when someone posts of a photo from a family outing you may have attended, allowing you to keep a photo you may not have seen otherwise. The site will now recognize new accounts made by people you have blocked and prevent the new account from sending you friend requests or messages.

Since 2010, face recognition technology has helped bring people closer together on Facebook.
