Facebook will be grouping people on your friends list with similar faces together, presenting them in a list when you tag photos so that you merely have to click on the Facebook recognition suggestion to tag the snap.
It’s set to be a gradual roll-out, with 5% of users getting the new feature as of next week. A sensible decision, considering the 100 million+ photos uploaded to the social network every day.
“We wanted to make our photos product not suck,” Facebook’s vice president of product Chris Cox told CNet.
And we’re sure it wont suck, so long as it doesn’t mistake us for the Billy-No-Mates mingers on our friends list.
