Facebook Tags Pictures for You

What some folks may find convenient, others consider an invasion of privacy. If you want to opt out of Facebook's new facial recognition feature, you can find out how right here.

Look for Mario Armstrong's everything tech segments in the 8 o'clock hour of CNN Saturday Morning with T.J. Holmes.

    Hi CNN

    I just tried to make the change on facebook, in regards to your news segment, it is not available.


    Suggest photos of me to friends
    When photos look like me, suggest my name
    This is not yet available to you..

    Facebook has not allowed for cllients' creative us of tags.

    My daughter-in-law tags me in photos she posts of my
    granddaughter so I know to go look for it. She often
    has 10-15 tags on a photo.

    My homepage photo is of my sons.

    There are no pics of me on Facebook. But my name is tagged
    a lot.

    This tool is only available to those that you are friends with on facebook so unless your children are already friends with sexual predators it is unreasonable to assume they will be able to find information on said child with just a picture.
