Star for you!
This is exactly how it will go.
As well as to the person who mentioned getting some IR blockers to prevent the cameras from recognizing you...
Yeah, that would hit level 7 straight away :p
I like the idea of IR camera blockers, but cops would look at that and go... Whats he hiding? He is suspicious, we should take him aside and have a quiet "chat".
Sad but true

They are putting the cameras in shops not your bedroom.
Do you have a brain disease buddy? Seek medical advice.

Facebook has become such a pervasive force in modern society that increasing numbers of employers, and even some psychologists, believe people who aren’t on social networking sites are ‘suspicious.’ The German magazine Der Taggspiegel went so far as to point out that accused theater shooter James Holmes and Norwegian mass murder Anders Behring Breivik have common ground in their lack of Facebook profiles

I'm sorry, but I don't get what your problem is with facial recognition when entering stores? That is a GOOD thing. If faces are recognized whenever a person enters a shopping establishment it is a faster and easier way to catch burglars and other criminals that are at large. If they're recognized within a store especially if they're trying to rob again, the police may be called upon sooner and criminal can be caught much much sooner. It's about security and keeping the public and businesses safe, not to invade your privacy. Besides, as you stated, people can either opt in or out so what's the problem? It's voluntary.

Personally I use facebook to keep in touch with my 13 yr old daughters that don't live with me full time, and as a birthday reminder service for all my friends. Occasionally I trade funny pictures and quotes and post up the latest pic of one of my newest tattoos. So if the government wants to see the picture of the tattoo that my 4 yr old daughter drew for me that I had tattooed then more power to them, they could gleam the same info by going to the shop I had it done at or if I ever happen to be arrested then they will have it on file as well. But really why all the fearmongering over facebook? I refused to sign up for the past several years because of this site and all the boogyman stories, alas I made an account and don't regret it. Some of you people need to come out of the basement and start living and stop worrying so much, if they gonna get you then they gonna get you.
