"Facebook users should pay attention: When you tag a friend in a photo, that’s feeding a massive facial recognition dataset"

@titus I wonder if there’s a way for people like me who have never joined #Facebook to see if they’re in its #facebase.

@wrenpile If you're in EU, you might have legal right to see info connected to your name. But Irish data protection officer does not sanction their non-compliance with this. See (German text)

@titus Thank you. That is one of the most annoying things in the world, and yet so few seem to realize that this is going on.

@skiring @titus Wasn't it kinda obvious ? I mean. :) It can help for police investigation tho, when u've been raped or killed 😁

@Ellz_n @titus What's obvious to some is not so obvious to others.

@skiring @titus I know. But it gotta be. If you tag a friend on a face, you know the database is watching you and saving your tag for it to even exist. The Chart when you register explains where you put your foot into. You gotta know.. it gotta become obvious. #wakeupminds
