New Facebook tools now alert you when someone tries to impersonate you on Facebook
Apart from the new tools Facebook roll-out that let you prevent unwanted friend requests and messages, the company has also introduced another new features that will help manage people identity on the social network. The feature called Face Recognition Technology gives you the ability to
issue notifications whenever you show up in someone else’s photo.
Once you have the feature enabled and Facebook spots you in a photo, and you’re also part of the audience of that image, then you’ll be notified about this, even if you’ve not been tagged in the photo.
“You’re in control of your image on Facebook and can make choices such as whether to tag yourself, leave yourself untagged, or reach out to the person who posted the photo if you have concerns about it,” Facebook says.
Moving on, the company says they’ll soon be rolling out another feature that’ll let you know if someone is trying to impersonate you on Facebook by using your photo as their profile image.
It’s worth mentioning that both these features are optional. The company also revealed that the functionalities use the same face recognition tech that’s currently used to suggest friends you may want to tag in photos or videos.
