Already have...

The problem at the moment is actually anonymising the data, rather than identification, which is almost default now... many companies I work with have to run algorithms to not recognise you, due to privacy laws. They scrub out the private identifying data in memory before it gets recorded ( so it was never recorded), leaving only groupings like gender, age, height, etc... for statistics, advertising and marketing purposes.

It's possible they can capture your face on a security camera (along with everyone else in realtime), within less than a second, they can trawl the internet and available databases, and can come back with an identification and associated details all only from public sources.

Their theoretical statistics were something like 80% will return a 100% positive, 15% will return a greater than 95% positive, overall something like 99% would return an over 90% positive.

Government agencies are struggling to "not" know people because they almost cant help it.

Facebook is the mother of all B's.

I'm on my third FB account in the past two years since they wouldn't let me access my first account anymore. It was a password and phone number issue that was never resolved.

The second account was shut down as I didn't access it enough. According to FB that is.

Let's go back in time to keep MySpace the way it used to be.

Saying hi to Tom Anderson, if you are out there reading this.

Facebook has developed its own facial recognition technology that is highly advanced. For example, it knows who people are in photos even if they are not tagged, or even if they are older or younger, grow a beard, etc.

I noticed that a few months ago when I posted a picture of me and my family on Facebook and it automatically tagged my twin sister as if she was in the picture too.

That is as utterly creepy as it is hilarious. Wtf?!? How in tf would they know whether or not it's your actual FACE in the first place?

I mean I get that there's facial recognition software and that might explain the lack of accepting a well known celebrity FACE. People do try to impersonate celebrities on social media fairly regularly.

But what if you submitted a photo of just some random person's FACE who doesn't have a facebook account? Would it then accept that as your FACE and be done with it?

You should try that next!

I’m not clear on something, were you doing something specific that required a face upload? I haven’t had to do that for my Facebook account ever, heck the email associated with my account is out of date.

As a side note, my PS4 uses facial recognition for logging in.

Also, Coinbase, a site used for buying and selling cryptocurrency, requires identity verification by uploading a government ID and a picture of your face!

I was just setting up a new account so I can try and get this documentary series I'm pouring my life into out there, this isnt even "my" account we're talking here, not even my "IIB" persona per se, its a frickin' series.

One which by the time I'm done is about sure to get me kilt so uploading my flippin' photo WTF.

It is something, like people arent allowed to make mock celebrity accounts anymore? I only ever even had Myspace really back in the day specifically for the integrated blog and ability to take your politics to people it was great for that for a time. So I dont know the trends I'm just not the social media type.

I thought about scratching and sniffing for some photo gimmick that might work, but then I just couldnt help but troll the damn thing with another funny LOL.

I mean what di they just hire 10,000 new reviewers for this thrust? How can they not expect people to troll it? I can see people trolling it just for the laugh. Meaning potential account logins getting busted out of the scheme by the score.

F it is now. I could never get past the name "Facebook" back in the day when people were switching in. Then you couldnt do blogs, no sweet profile like Myspace could stack your whole political manifesto all in it. WTF is a "facebook" gawl.

Well now its has blossomed.

Same problem here...only I just had to reset my friggin' password. Simple, right? Ha...I've done each and every little idiotic thing they demaned and I still can't log in even though they accepted my password change. #%@#*...all that hassle, AND MORE apparently to come, just to supposedly obtain a better, faster way to play a silly game I like to play! And to access my son's FB page as well...and there dosen't appear to be ANY WAY to address FB directly.

All the tech crapola "they" (whomever "they" are) tout as being quicker and more convenient is actually a HUGE pain in the butt. It's like at the store, you want to get your groceries, pay and hustle on home. But, NOOOOOOOOO...ya gotta do this, do that, answer seemingly questin after question just to pay for your groceries. Where and when is it all gonna STOP?!

Forget their games.

Go download an "emulator" for SNES, Neo Geo, Sega Genesis, N64, or hell you can even get higher end or way older systems... and when you do you have the entire libraries of said systems at your fingertips. All these news games are 1-900-CRACK-PIPE, while very few of them are half as good or half as fun as the old games you could just pay once and get it all it had to offer.

Curious...has anyone here tried closing their Facebook account? I'm wondering if they make you got through a bunch of crap if you want to get rid of your account. Or if one is even allowed to close their account.

Oh I can't have that before we have had the opportunity to share some beers. You better keep those eyes open a few more weeks. Im almost got some free time to ride out there.

The SNES classic is awesome, and can be loaded with multiple emulators including for other systems (genesis, nes, gameboy a couple more). I decided I am going to buy that instead of a PS4

They wanted a picture of your genitals last week so,

You can't be too surprised about your face.

Facebook have 52 genders, clearly they needed to work out which it was, now they need the face to match the tackle.

An Asian Aussie school kid set up his FB account under the name "Phuc Dat Bich" and FB wanted him to verify the account so he sent them a photo of his drivers licence with "Phuc Dat Bich" on it. It worked for a while and made the news about how FB was racist for questioning his Vietnamese name, turns out it was a fake ID and his name was really Tom

So , if they require a photo of you , how do they know it is you ?

Exactly! I figured out the thing crawled the numbers in my phone somehow, as there's no way it could know the names people I know it suggested me with the new email acct I gave it. Even though I havent logged in with the phone itself just the confirmation text. And there's no photos of me in the phone, nor could it get one right now automatically the lenses covered... so who does this thing think it is, GOD?

Is the internet: GOD?
Who's to say?
It kinda does seem to be a compendium of all human knowledge. Whatever that means...

If you want to play with Facebook, you have to play by their rules?

I'm a true anti-Big Brother creature.

Yet has an account on facebook of all places.
The irony is not lost on me.

Funnily enough the majority of my facebook posts these days seem to be people completely against facebook.
Why is it that the people who hate these services the most use them?

It is just going to be worse as time goes on as more and more people get engineered and desensitized to giving away their privacy and personal information.

But yes, I do find it hilarious those against 'Big Brother' platforms are usually the biggest users of said platforms.
And from experience every single one of them has some valid reason they haven't shut down their accounts and why they need to be on there.

You got your cake now eat it.
Otherwise go hit that button marked 'deactivate account'
You cannot have it both ways.

Otherwise feel free to go create your own private and anonymous social media platform. It's easy enough to do.
