Face Recognition, Facebook and Self Shots

Over a year ago, I wrote about how nekkid self shots by attention-whores (aka normal women) could be combined with face recognition and embedded GPS tags to generate a more complete profile of any given woman, especially if she is under 25.

At that time, GSP tagging had been implemented, but a large face recognition database was not. Thankfully, Facebook has fixed that problem.

Facebook Inc. stoked fresh concerns from privacy advocates and lawmakers in the U.S. and Europe by rolling out technology that uses facial recognition to identify people in photos on its website. The technology was designed to help Facebook users mark friends in photos as they upload them to the social-networking site. Facebook first introduced the tool to U.S. users in December, and added it to most of the rest of the world this week, prompting privacy officials in Europe to open investigations.

and here is the best part.

The face-recognition tool is enabled for all users by default.

As some of you know, Facebook is the site of choice for attention-whores to post their normal photos. You can bet that the technology will be either copied or replicated by people of a more.. creative mindset.

Thank you Facebook. Thank you for making my predictions a reality, so soon. Let the data mining begin!

    with photos on the net, such as BJs With Eye Contact: Jun 5, 2011 NekkidCuties, these young women are now mostly unmarriageable. Who wants to be to be legally entangled with that? Shacking up isn’t a good answer either, because if you breed one, you will be on the hook for 1/2 million or more, for those making middle class wages. A debt enforced by guys with guns I might add. Maybe they will get lucky and facial recognition will not extend much outside the domain of facebook and these women can bank on anonymity.

    Wait- because a woman enjoys sex, she’s “unmarriageable”? Double standard, much?

    What the fuck kind of idiot are you?

    YOU’RE unmarriageable.
