Submission + - Facebook Disables Facial Recognition in EU (theverge.com)

SquarePixel writes: Facebook has disabled facial recognition features on its site for all new European users. The move follows stringent privacy recommendations made by the Irish Data Protection Commissioner. Facebook plans to delete all Tag Suggest information and delete the feature for existing EU users by October 15th at the latest. "The news comes as the DPC publishes a lengthy report on a re-audit of the company, which has its European headquarters in Dublin. The report is broadly positive, and the decision to disable Tag Suggest appears to have played a major role in assuaging the Commissioner's office."
