You’ve heard the old story. Some classmate from the 1970s dug up a photo of you and him at the local pub looking slightly pie-eyed. Facebook’s magic face recognition software identifies you by name and now everyone knows it’s you and—worse—can find this picture of you with hardly any effort. You’d like to avoid that kind of thing? Here’s how to opt out:
- Go to your “Account” link. Click
- Find the “Privacy Settings” in the drop down menu. Click
- Now find the ”Sharing on Facebook” section. Click.
- Find “Customize Settings. ”Click.
- Scroll to find “Suggested Photos of Me to Friends.” Click.
- Next click on “Edit Settings.”
- You then find “Disable.” Click.
