Share This Post

It’s been a BIG week in social media as Facebook rolls out new features like products support for hashtags, video on Instagram , photo commenting and many minor as well as major updates.
Today, we surprisingly got an information about, the social network is testing photo tagging suggestions in users’ newsfeeds. Some users are seeing a photo tag request directly beneath to photos in their newsfeed. The message reads, ‘Want to tag {user} ?’ users can reply either with Yes or No.
The new tweak uses auto face-recognition technology in order to predict the person on the photo. The feature will only works if the user is enabled ‘tag suggestion system’ (Account Settings-> Timeline and Tagging-> How can I manage tags people add and tagging suggestions?-> Tag Suggestion).


Photos have long been one of Facebook’s most popular features. According to Facebook, 99% of Facebook users have uploaded at least one photo, and more than 100 million photos are uploaded every day.
