Another reason to keep one's personal life of the internet.

I went out on a seaside picnic with a couple and she snapped some pics. By the time I got online in the evening, my face (with mouth open and cramming the potato salad in) appeared on her FB site with name tags. I was shocked but I wasn't sure what the social rules for such things are. And I didn't want to make a big deal out of it. But, while I try to keep a reign on my personal info online, how can you stop others from casually violating your privacy like that?

In your privacy settings for tagging, check "no one" can see photos tagged of me. That takes care of it.

The problem is anybody who wants can take a photo of you and subject you to this. You don't even get a choice in the matter. More major violations of privacy.

You can untag yourself. Not that I am for this and not that you should have to even do that!

Not cool, or creepy. Invasive is more accurate. Part of this is for advertisers because psychology tells us that we're drawn to people that are similar to ourselves. So ads that show photos on the right side of your Facebook window will slo...wly begin to look more and more like you, thus (in theory) you might be more inclined to click on these ads, which is very attractive to advertisers since it would be expected that their click-through rates would increase through this use of technology.

Post a profile pic of someone who is completely opposite of you (i.e., black, if you're white, male, if you're female). Leave it there long enough and watch the photos of people in the ads start to resemble your fake profile pic. Feel deceived?

The other part is just about scary technology for tracking and profiling purposes. Don't think that your government isn't aware of how easy it is to track us via social media. Re-read '1984', then shudder. Watch 'Minority Report' again. Yeah, it's scarier now.

Zuckerberg is going too far with this privacy issue. When does this stop? If adults want to give away their privacy, then that's fine. But at some point, we need to draw the line. Next, they will come out with a mind reader!

I've pulled back. People were all over me about not having any personal pics on my FB account. Seriously, peer pressure at my age! The only time I valued Facebook was when I found out a relatively young friend of mine had died. And for getting some people together (by invitation) to discuss each episode of Mad Men. Other than that, I think it is addictive and invasive.

Awesome! Maybe Facebook can add another new feature that takes our fingerprints straight from our keyboards.

One more indicator that facebook is nothing but a CIA-backed honeypot.

I guess we'll have to see if people get as mad about this as they do for potential of this technology to be used by the TSA for example.

In the spirit of laziness, I suspect blind, volunteer compliance will be the go.

You think your comments leave a fingerprint on the internet, consider now the consequence of adding your face.

Like other folks on here have asked, I thought this feature already existed?

Yippee, give up all your extremely little privacy
that you may have left and make this man a multi-billionaire in the process. I don't thing so!

You know, why not head down to your local police dept, let them take your photo, fingerprints, and DNA, too?

Anyone who exposes themself on the internet like this is absolutely loony, and I have grave concerns about children who do not know any better putting themselves and their friends and families at risk.

This is going overboard, way overboard but I suspect law enforcement and corporations just love it.

This is not wise.

The movie makes him seem this year but he is not. Facebook is not. Definitely not. There is good hype going no though.

Maybe I'm missing something....hasn't this feature been out for a month or so? I know I've used it.

No. At the moment it recognizes faces (and asks you to tag them), but it does not recognize the identity.
