Privacy Alert: Facebook Photo Tagging

Recently Facebook began using a face-recognition algorhythm to try and “find” you in photos your friends have taken and posted online. Once Facebook thinks it’s found you, it recommends your friend “tag” you in the photo. Being tagged in a photo associates your name with the photo (and even links to your Facebook page, once tagged).

This might not sound like a big deal… until a friend happens to upload a candid picture of you unwinding that you’d rather not have pasted all over the internet.

The good news? You can opt-out of this setting. For a video tutorial on how to turn this “feature” off, check out this original article by Whitson Gordon on
