Facial Recognition Technology In Google+

One of the fastest growing social network Google Plus adds more facilities. The fastest growing social network, Google Plus, keeps improving its arsenal in the battle with rivals like Facebook and Twitter. Google’s newest heavy weapon is: face detection. This technology allows users to tag the photos quicker and easier than before, without manually entering the identity for individual pictures.
When the user decides to publish an entire photo album, the new face detection feature will display in one place all the faces found in that album. Later on, grouping photos according to the persons that appear in them will be much easier and then tag them with the name and the email will be made with just a few keystrokes. Users can access this new feature from three different places.
One way is to create an album from the sharebox or to add photos to an existing album. Once the upload is complete, Google will recognize the faces and the tagging feature will appear. Another way is to add photos from sharebox and to follow the same steps and Tag People when this option appears. Or, there is the possibility of tagging an entire album using button just above the photo previews.
To respect the people’s right to privacy, after the tagging, every person that appears in the photos will be informed and they can decide if they approve the tagging or not.
Initially, Google provided face detection features with Picasa, but after a while, this service was renamed Google Photos. To gear up for further improvements, Google acquired PittPatt, and its patents for the technology used in face detection and live tracking. Now what Google cooked up in this department is available for Google + users to enjoy.
