When you are notified, you then have the choice to add your tag to the photo, leave yourself untagged, or report the photo as inappropriate.
The feature, which is powered by Facebook's artificial intelligence technology, will alert users when someone else uploads a photo of them. The only exception to this is if the image was set as a profile picture, which is useful if you want to identify fake accounts. These settings boil down to Facebook demanding forgiveness after refusing to ask for permission, and it may not sit well with users.
The new features debuting will be available everywhere except Europe and Canada, where privacy regulators have previously raised objections to Facebook's auto photo tagging feature, Sherman said. The only time you won't be notified is if you aren't part of the audience for the content.

Carmelo Anthony: Return to NY will be 'emotional'

The new feature, which Facebook frames as a control measure for a user's image, is one of three new applications of facial recognition technology the company announced Tuesday. The goal of the scanning, according to Facebook, is to alert you if someone has publicly uploaded a photo of you that you don't know about, especially if they are trying to impersonate you. Face recognition will allow people who use screen readers to know who appears in photos in their News Feed even if people aren't tagged. If you're a little sensitive about how often you show up in pics on the internet, Facebook has a new privacy tool that may interest you. By looking at photos from an event, for example, and identifying the faces, Facebook could know everybody who was there and know they might be connected.
Facebook will also allow users to ignore a conversation in Messenger and move it out of your inbox without having to block the sender.
In conjunction with the new facial recognition tools, Facebook put out another post in its "Hard Questions" series. "We've also heard from groups that work with survivors of domestic violence that being able to see messages is often a valuable tool to assess if there is risk of additional abuse".
