Facebook's computer systems will soon be able to recognize familiar faces.
Facebook is making changes to the process for tagging friends in photos uploaded to the social network, the company announced on Tuesday.
Starting in a few weeks, the system will scan all images posted to Facebook and suggest the names of people who appear in the frame. Last year, Facebook began rolling the facial-recognition feature out to a test group.
Facebook's more than 500 million users have been automatically included in the database, but the company is allowing each person to choose whether to be identified by toggling a pane in the account's privacy settings.
The tool would still scan that person's face and figure out who it is, but it won't display that information. People can still manually tag friends.
