What could better fit Facebook than a face recognition application developed by Face.com?
Facebook has recently become the first photo sharing website in the world, hosting over 15 billion photos and adding 850 million more each month; so, helping people retrieve photos of themselves and their friends makes perfect sense. Trying Photo Finder was also a fun and addictive activity, I almost forgot to write my article… I was amazed how fast my unknown (untagged) photos were retrieved although the lighting condition and the quality were so bad in some of them. According to Face.com, a few thousand people have used the application in closed alpha for only 30 days, and just from that group, 400 million photos have been scanned and more than 700,000 people have been identified.
