Disable Facebook’s Facial Recognition Feature to Prevent Autotagging

Lifehacker.com provides a heads-up about a new “feature” in Facebook: facial recognition autotagging here: How to Stop Facebook from Using Facial Recognition on You – Lifehacker. This built-in feature allows Facebook to search photos for faces and automatically tag you in those photos. If you are like me, you need to use social media, but you also like to control your information on social media. Luckily, you can disable this new autotagging feature by following this chain: Facebook Privacy Settings > Customize Settings > Suggest Photos of Me to Friends > Disable.
