Facebook facial recognition

The company has a history of introducing new features without letting users know in advance. In most cases, initial criticism has died down after users adjust to the new settings, as with the Facebook profile redesign.

If you have the new feature and want to disable it here’s how to do it:

  1. Go to Account > Privacy Settings

  1. Scroll down to the section headed “Things others share”

  2. Click “Edit Settings” button next to “Suggest photos of me to friends.”

  1. Select “Disabled” from the drop-down menu.
