Facebook’s with new Photo tags

Reports have it that the all so popular “Social Networking Heavyweight” , Facebook has started up a new feature that shall allow the user to tag photos with more easiness than before.

According to the popular Mashable website, “If you’ve got a large album or a lot of friends in a single photo, this process is inefficient and tedious. To solve this problem, Facebook has implemented face detection technology that will automatically find faces in photos and select them, eliminating one of the most tedious steps in tagging Facebook friends in photos. Your friends are already selected by the software — all you have to do is answer the Facebook prompt, “Whose face is this?””.

What seems to a natural act of letting the users of Facebook have a more Facebook based upload and tagging plugin, Facebook seems to be going in the right direction, at least for now.

Reports had it that earlier this year, Facebook was seeing a heavy rise in the uploads done by the Third Party based Facebook Apps, which made uploading and tagging much simpler.

When I went to check out such apps, one of them called LiveUpolad, a plugin in the hugely popular Microsoft’s Window’s Live Photo Gallery has a better functionality than Facebook’s plugin.

However, one thing still comes as a non-surprise package  as the post on Facebook to bring this new feature was written by Sam Odio, one of the co-founders of Divvyshot, which Facebook acquired back in April in order to improve the Photos product.
