Facebook DeepFace will probably stop the need to tag people in photos, and the reason for this is because Facebook will automatically add them. Most of the time people tag others in photos without their permission and here comes the clever part. If there is a photo with your friends in it as well as other people you do not know, Facebook DeepFace will automatically tag people if they are on your friend’s list, if they are not on your friend’s list it will automatically blur out those people for privacy reasons.

The new social network feature will also recognize you in any Facebook photo and keep that data for all other photos.

DeepFace uses algorithms to recognize faces, eyes, mouths etc.
