EFF: How to Disable Facebook's Facial Recognition Feature & Control Photo Tagging

EFF shows you three ways to delete your facial fingerprint data from Facebook and shows you a privacy setting that lets you ensure that you are the only person who can see tags identifying you in photographs.


As always Facebook would "love" for everyone to share everything with the world (and with them), therefore this new feature is enabled by default (aka opt-out).

Privacy advocates and security professionals [i.e. those paid to be paranoid] and Europe greatly prefer features which are disabled by default (aka opt-in).
