The search engine, Google launches a new feature called "Find my faceWhich should save time when identifying our photos manually.
The concept: A facial recognition system that automatically and quickly identifies members' friends.

Since, Facebook launched the facial recognition feature, it suffered bad reviews from its users and the German CNIL. This allowed Google to learn from it and to model this application differently!
Similar features can be found in competitors of Google+, nevertheless these are more thoughtful and above all preserve the privacy of its members. A condition that has become essential nowadays, because more and more personal data is disclosed on the internet.
