An anonymous reader writes: Facebook has announced it has brought back its photo Tag Suggestions feature to the US after temporarily suspending it last year to make some technical improvements. Facebook says it has re-enabled it so that its users can use facial recognition “to help them easily identify a friend in a photo and share that content with them.” Facebook first rolled out the facial recognition feature across the US in late 2010. The company eventually pushed photo Tag Suggestions to other countries in June 2011, but in the US there was quite a backlash. Yet Facebook doesn’t appear to have made any privacy changes to the feature: it’s still on by default.
