Facebook starts testing automatic face recognition

Hi All
Just seen this:
[quote="Facebook’s New Photo Tagging Feature Selects Friends For You"]
If you’ve got a large album or a lot of friends in a single photo, this process is inefficient and tedious. To solve this problem, Facebook has implemented face detection technology that will automatically find faces in photos and select them, eliminating one of the most tedious steps in tagging Facebook friends in photos. Your friends are already selected by the software — all you have to do is answer the Facebook prompt, “Whose face is this?”
The technology is the same as the facial detection technology most digital cameras use today. While the tech itself may not be all that new, it is a clever and very welcomed addition to the Facebook Photos feature set.

Erm no way do i want my name tag to any foto on that even though i don`t use it i know many who do.
