Facebook considers adding profile photos to facial recognition database

http://j.mp/1fnmQGM (Guardian)

   "Facial recognition technology has been a sensitive issue for
    technology companies, raising concerns among some privacy advocates
    and government officials. Tag suggest, which the company introduced in
    2011, is not available in Europe due to concerns raised by regulators.
    Google's social network, Google+, also employs similar technology, but
    requires user consent. And it has banned third-party software makers
    from using facial recognition technology in apps designed for its
    Glass wearable computer."
