Also facebook provide a  control of your image on Facebook and you can make choices such as whether to tag yourself, leave yourself untagged.

According to facebook, People gave us feedback that they would find it easier to manage face recognition through a simple setting, so we’re pairing these tools with a single “on/off” control. If your tag suggestions setting is currently set to “none,” then your default face recognition setting will be set to “off” and will remain that way until you decide to change it.

Facebook using a new technology to analyse the Pixel of the images that user already tagged in that will be used to generate a string number called template.

Any of your photos will be uploaded to Facebook then they will compare your photo with an existing template and let you alert each and every time when the new photo will be uploaded.

Facebook introducing these new features in most places, except in Canada and the EU where Facebook doesn’t currently offer face recognition technology.
