A theory that Perhaps the fads that have come of recent such as the Planking/Owling or Teapotting, could be used to collect pictures of the public to use in order to have an even more in depth profile of peoples lives. Possible fads create different physical angles of the subject that could be used to recognize them in the public eye. What are your thoughts?

I get what you are saying, but 'owling' completely hides said person's face from any recognition.

Perhaps the rest, though.

Thank you I agree, the owling does hide the face, and looks rather stupid to begin with but, it wont be the last, teapotting just shows how silly people will act for a social networking site. Also, I had just come across this.
askmarion.wordpress.com...

That was reported july 20th. Facebook opened its facial recognition tool on 2 days ago with the default option as "on", possibly breaking privacy agreements.

An interesting idea, and it would be great as a supervillain's plot -- maybe a Doctor Who villain -- but I seriously doubt it. Though there are loads of people partaking, I don't think there are nearly enough to help create a comprehensive database. Basically, I think it would just be too inefficient.

Though, if they're just using it to study generalities of facial expressions under strange circumstances, that might work. It could be helping them model the ways that people change their faces.

But it still seems really inefficient and a poor use of time.

I just watched this video on owling. It does a good job of explaining what it is. It's pretty funny too.

Facebook is just a version of population data gathering... and as we can see its becoming obsolete (kind of soon but hey) so they are moving to the new system by Google ... G+ ...

I bet after they perfect that system up they will make another one popular and then another one and so on and so fourth.

When they get the whole system up and running they will just leave one social network up and running and use the software they created and adapt it to CCTV and other things like that.
