Facebook Adds Facial Recognition To List Of Frightening Features

Facebook has announced its latest plans to assimilate our lives - facial recognition. In a few weeks, the social network will scan pics you upload and attempt to identify your friends - then tag them. It's OK, you can turn it off.

The feature will attempt to "suggest the name of the friend" in your photos if it can find a suitable match, or, if not, pop up a window so you can name and shame them manually. [Facebook blog]
