Default Cool or Creepy?

Oh, Facebook, here we go again.

The social media giant is facing a new wave of concerns over privacy protection after launching its latest feature, which allows users to identify their friends automatically in photos without their permission.

The photo tagging tool, called Tag Suggestions, was put into place in December, but it was listed as unavailable until recently.

Here's how it works: When a user uploads new photos to his or her Facebook profile, the new feature then scans them with facial recognition software to match the people in the photos with other photos in which they might have been previously tagged.

The feature also offers "group tagging," which allows users to type in a person's name and "apply it to multiple photos of the same person," according to Facebook's blog post on the subject.

The problem is that users can do this without their friend's permission.

Facebook said on its blog Tuesday that it has been rolling out the Tag Suggestions feature over the course of several months. While it was originally just available in the United States, they also said it is now activated in several countries, which has already caused some headaches.

Definitely creepy. Most facebook users are perfectly capable of tagging their own photos if they want them tagged. I'm annoyed at the mere idea that facebook might start unilaterally (without the permission of users) applying tags for you. How offensive... it's like saying "we think you're too inept to tag your own friends".

According to Nightline last night they've been tagging and compiling quietly for months now Blue. That's what started the lawsuit and then the Nightline story.

I'm not sure what's the difference between you tagging and them tagging. I'm not on facebook and have visited it only a few times so I'm not sure how everything works.

If I recall correctly, the software is from (face.com) . I know the the same technology is already being used in a couple photo storage software programs you can run on your computer that sound pretty cool. You can search your entire database by face. Pretty useful if you have tons of pictures. But I'm not sure I'd want the same personal database on the Internet for all time!

They also mentioned that this software was used the last Super Bowl where they had cameras at the entrances. They caught 26 criminals just by the computer scanning the crowds walking into the game using biometeric markers and comparing to police databases. All automated.

Scary stuff, Yoda... and precisely why I am not exactly "forthcoming" with providing personal information to facebook. Any pics of me on there are generally tagged ones from other users. It's convenient having an easily-accessed place to share pictures and stuff with family and friends, but once that content is posted there, it becomes public; not private.

This. What's the point of Facebook, Twitter, Myspace or any other of that social media crap except to relinquish privacy?
If concerned about your privacy being invaded, then communicate by phone or e-mail with specific individuals. Then only our Gov can 'legally' violate your privacy - despite the 4th Amendment that everyone in office to an oath to protect and defend.

Only a Few Years Left Until the Social Web Kills Off Websites?
By Graeme McMillan on June 10, 2011

Read more: http://techland.time.com/2011/06/10/...#ixzz1P2DCqjX5'

I hope you're all taking full advantage of your favorite websites today because, despite what common opinion says, they won't be around forever.

According to Jim Boulton, curator of the Digital Archaeology exhibition currently running in New York that charts the history of web design and internet evolution, we only have a short amount of time left in the website era as we know it.

Boulton told ReadWriteWeb:

"In a few years' time, there won't be such a thing as a website. With the rise of the social Web, now online experiences are built around the individual rather than the organization."

I'm not entirely sure that that means that websites will disappear entirely, though. Yes, RSS feeds and various forms of collecting and formatting them mean that you don't have to go to specific websites anymore, but without websites, how will people be able to discover new feeds and content in the first place? Surely there will always have to be a destination in addition to aggregators, even if those destinations become less visited?

Of course, I write for websites for a living, so I may be a potentially biased observer.

Complete BS - Social media is an addition too, not a replacement for the internet. Those comments are like saying, "Tube tops are popular now, so soon it will be the only clothing article people wear."

I think it's hilarious that people who put their personal info out for all to see get all bent out of shape when someone uses or abuses that info.

I just don't see how someone averaging 6 posts a day on a forum could complain about Facebook users needing a life. It's very hypocritical.

That's like posting 1 status, writing on the walls of 3 people and commenting on 2 pictures. DAILY

Yea, but posting here is cool and manly, not socially inept like using a site that hundreds of millions of people probably use. Geez, can't you see the difference? I guess you're just not the same kind of badass, rugged individualist as that guy.

You didn't do too well with reading comprehension, did ya?


"people who put their personal info out for all to see get all bent out of shape when someone uses or abuses that info"

Akin to me getting upset if my teenage daughter borrows my CC and I don't set a limit, and then get upset if she spends a bunch of money at the mall.

Sure they are. Doesn't matter what settings you put on your own personal photo libraries. If you have any "facebook friends" at all and appear in their unblocked pics, whether they tag you or not, you're out there. Or people that aren't even your "facebook friends", same thing.

It's really not that hard to get access to "blocked" photo albums BTW.
