SOCIAL WALL FACEBOOK TIP – DISABLE FACE RECOGNITION

Facebook has introduced a feature called Face Recognition. This enables Facebook to go through photos and videos (either your friends or ones you’ve taken) and Facebook automatically tags them if it recognises your face. It’s a pretty cool feature to have, but for those of you who are worried about your privacy then we recommend you disable this. Note that Facebook is rolling this out to everyone so you may not have this option yet but make sure to bookmark this page so you can come back to these instructions.

By default, this is enabled, you need to follow these steps to disable this feature:
