Facebook recently announced a new feature called “tag suggestions,” which will use face recognition technology to suggest which friends are featured in which photos. When a user uploads a large amount of photos, Facebook will group similar faces together, and will look at past photo tags to suggest who the person in the photo might be.

Facebook is pitching the feature as a way to make tagging easier, especially when uploading a big photo album.
